There is still no reason for Nigerians to be optimistic as Delta Air Lines announced on Monday the suspension of its flights between New York JFK airport and Lagos.
The suspension takes effect from October 4, 2022, according to a statement by the airline.
It stated that the route suspension was to fit into “the current demand environment.”
The statement read, “Delta is suspending its nonstop 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.”
This comes amid worsening domestic flights situation, with some local airlines suspending operations, causing air fares to skyrocket.
