In 2016 British Airways celebrated 80 years of Nigeria flight operations. On 9 February 1936, the Weekly Imperial Airways flight from London to Khartoum connected with another fight to Kano, heralding the start of services to Nigeria. Today, Imperial Airways’ successor British Airways operates daily, direct Boeing 747 and 777 services to Abuja and Lagos.
Pablo De Renzis (Head of Middle East, Africa and Central Asia Sales), said if the airline had been around in Nigeria for as long as 80 years, it meant a commitment to the country and successful business relationship. He went on to say that “The first flight from London to Kano took seven days, with some few stops in between. Now, the flying time is less than seven hours. Things have changed a lot now daily from Lagos and Abuja,”.
“These 80 years of flying into Nigeria confirms the commitment we have to the country. We are very happy with the relationship we have with Nigeria,” he stated.
