Delta currently operates daily service between Atlanta and Lagos and, with the resumption of daily New York-JFK service, will offer a total of 14 weekly flights to Nigeria

A US-based carrier, Delta Airline, has concluded plans to resume its service to Nigeria from New York-JFK with effect from December 1, 2024.

The new addition would increase the airline’s frequencies to 14 with the existing daily service between Atlanta and Lagos.

This is in addition to the plan to upgrade its fleet for Ghana and South Africa service to reinforce its number one position in Africa.

The airline carries more than half a million customers between the US and Africa each year on more than 34 weekly flights.

“These enhancements reflect our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of our customers,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Network Planning in a statement.

“We’re expanding our options for customers to experience the premium service and elevated hospitality they expect from Delta.”

The statement said, “Delta currently operates daily service between Atlanta and Lagos and, with the resumption of daily New York-JFK service, will offer a total of 14 weekly flights to Nigeria in December through the first half of January and 10 weekly flights for the remainder of winter 2024.”

The airline stated that customers on this flight would have a choice of Delta One, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin experiences on the Airbus?A330-200.

As the first US airline to initiate service to Ghana, Delta remains the largest operator in the US-Ghana market, offering year-round daily service from New York-JFK.

Furthermore, in late October 2024, Delta will upgrade its aircraft serving Ghana to the 281-seat Airbus A330-900neo, adding nearly 1,000 more seats each week, providing 30% more capacity between Ghana and the US.
