Delta Takes Off For Nigeria

The carrier on Thursday announced it added a fourth route to Africa with daily nonstop service to Lagos, Nigeria from Atlanta, set to begin December 3. Delta said the service would save three to six hours of travel time between the United States and Nigeria, versus one-stop connections through Europe. Flights depart Atlanta at 4:25 p.m. and arrive at Lagos at 9:25 a.m. the next day. Return flights depart Lagos at 11:25 a.m. and arrive in Atlanta at 6:20 p.m. The past December, the carrier introduced service between New York and Accra, Ghana, as well as Atlanta and Johannesburg via Dakar. The new routes are part of Delta's initiative to offer more nonstop flights to Africa, as well as Asia, Latin America and Europe. Visit [www.delta.com].
