Delta Air Lines has started daily services to Lagos, Nigeria from its Atlanta hub, as the carrier looks to build on its African connections.
The US airline is the only carrier to serve Africa, with existing rotations between Atlanta and Johannesburg via Dakar and New York JFK and Accra, Ghana.
”We continuously look to develop high potential new markets,” said Delta executive vice president network planning and revenue management, Glen Hauenstein. ”We offer our customers a wide variety of destinations through the world”s largest connecting gateway operated by Delta in Atlanta.
”No longer do you have to connect in a European gateway in order to fly to Nigeria.”
Subject to government approval, Delta will also begin a second daily Lagos flight from New York JFK starting 9 June, while further African services are slated to Nairobi, via Dakar (2 June), Cape Town, via Dakar (3 June) and Cairo from 4 June.
The airline will operate its Nigeria services using Boeing 767-300ER equipment, carrying 241 passengers configured with 36 Businesselite and 205 economy class seats.
