Virgin Atlantic Airways has shut down rumours saying the airline has pulled out the Lagos route.
The airline who made this known via a statement obtained by 360Nobs said they will no longer have crew based in Lagos while assuring that this move will in no way affect their top notch service delivery.
Read statement below:
Virgin Atlantic Airways has no plans to pull out of the Lagos route, we are committed to continue delivering the experience our customers love whether they are flying for business or leisure.
We have decided that we will no longer have crew based in Lagos. This is by no means a reflection on our Lagos based cabin crew, the primary purpose of our locally based cabin crew has been to provide cultural expertise, and customer feedback has shown us that this is no longer a requirement on the Lagos route. The additional complexity required to operate an international crew base where there are no foreign language requirement means it is no longer sustainable going forward.
This announcement has no impact on our flying programme and we plan to continue flights between Lagos and London. After 14 years flying the route we remain committed to servicing the Nigerian people, whether it be for business, family or education.
