Delta’s hits one-million passenger-mark on Lagos-Atlanta route
Delta Air Lines has hit an important milestone as it carried the one-millionth customer to fly on its nonstop service between Nigeria and the United States.
The passenger, Gbemisola Abudu, was met by the Delta’s Commercial Director for East and West Africa, Bobby Bryan, as she checked in for her flight from Lagos to Atlanta and was presented with a special celebratory gift to mark the occasion.
Bryan said Delta has a lot to celebrate in Nigeria and “we’re delighted to congratulate Ms Abudu for being our one-millionth passenger on-board our Lagos route, a landmark moment for our airline.”
He added that Delta’s operations in Nigeria continue to go from strength to strength, as they celebrate 10-year anniversary in the Nigerian market.
Following her surprise at check-in, Abudu was treated to Delta’s Sky Priority airport service, as well as a VIP celebration in Delta’s airport lounge.
Delta is the only U.S. airline to serve Nigeria and will mark a decade of nonstop service to Lagos in December. From March 26, 2018, the airline will operate daily service between Lagos and the United States, with four weekly services to Atlanta complemented by three new weekly flights to New York-JFK.
