United States longest serving flight operator in Nigeria, Delta AirLine, has announced the suspension of its flights between New York-JFK and Lagos effective October 4, 2022.
The airline made the announcement in a statement released today August 30. According to the airline, the route suspension was to fit into “the current demand environment.” The statement, however, stressed that the airline was still operating its Lagos and Atlanta routes.
The statement read
“Delta is suspending its non-stop service between New York-JFK and Lagos to fit the current demand environment. The airline continues to operate service between Lagos and Atlanta and offers onward connections to New York and other cities across the United States.
Customers impacted by our suspended New York-JFK to Lagos service will be re-accommodated on Delta operated flights, or services operated by our joint venture partners. Delta remains committed to the Nigeria market.”
