Delta AirlinesThe United States Delta Airlines has marked its 10th anniversary of nonstop service between Lagos and Atlanta with a promise to be more committed to its Nigerian passengers.

This is just as the airline has announced that it will begin to operate a new daily service between Lagos and the United States from March 26, 2018 with four weekly services to Atlanta complemented by three new weekly flights to New York-JFK.

Speaking at the celebration in Lagos, Delta Airlines’ senior Vice President, Network Planning, Bob Cortelyou, who described the experience in the last 10 years as exciting for the airline, declared that the airline had carried over 1.1 million Nigerian passengers between Nigeria and the American route.

“It’s an honour to serve Lagos. For 10 years it has been an important route in our trans-Atlantic network not only for the business community, but also for customers reuniting with friends and families across the United States. With this milestone comes a new flight to New York-JFK starting in March and our customers can be sure we remain as committed as ever to delivering the very best in terms of network, schedule and on-board experience in Nigeria.
