New Schedule Boosts Convenience Between Lagos and the United States   

Delta is boosting travel choice for customers flying between Lagos and the United States with a new schedule effective March 28, 2020, designed to maximize customer convenience both in Nigeria and the U.S.

With four flights to Atlanta and three to New York-JFK from Lagos continuing to operate each week, highlights of the changes include:

Earlier arrival

New early evening departures from both Atlanta and New York-JFK arrive earlier into Lagos the next day, giving customers more time in the office. And, because Delta One features fully flat-bed seats with 180-degree recline, individual aisle access and luxurious bedding, business travelers arrive refreshed and ready to go.

Delta’s Lagos to Atlanta flight remains a late evening departure. The new, earlier inbound arrival times from the U.S. enable same-day handovers.
