It read, “Delta is suspending its non-stop 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.”

The foreign carrier resumed operations on its Lagos-Atlanta route on September 9, 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 virus with a decision to provide customers with additional safety measures.

In that period, the airline proposed not to sell tickets for the middle seats till March 2021, as a means of boosting travellers’ confidence and encouraging travel.
