ABU DHABI: Etihad Airways will upgrade its Lagos service to daily to meet growing demand from passengers travelling to and from Nigeria. The airline initially launched its service between Lagos, West Africa’s most populous city, and Abu Dhabi on July 1, 2012, with six flights a week enhancing the links between Nigeria, Africa’s third largest economy, and the United Arab Emirates. The new daily service will be introduced on March 31.
Maurice Phohleli, Etihad Airways’ General Manager, Nigeria and West Africa, said, “We have received a very positive response from the Nigerian market since launching our service six months ago. Clearly, the people of Nigeria appreciate the superior product and service of the ‘World’s Leading Airline’ and we are proud to serve them.
The new daily service will coincide with the start of the airline’s new summer schedule, and will significantly improve connections between Nigeria and the UAE.
