Virgin Atlantic To Lagos- Any More News?

Sun Apr 01, 2001 8:29 pm

Last year Sir Richard Branson was quoted as saying that VS would be flying to Lagos, Nigeria in 2001.
Since then we've heard nothing more.
Have VS scaped plans to fly to Nigeria or are they just posponed?

Cheers,
Jamie.

I haven't really heard much of any new routes for Virgin this year, but I know that Lagos is definitely on their list. This year seems to be a slow one for airline expansion, but I expect many new routes to be opened for the company over the next five years. The Middle East, Australia, Africa, and more Transatalntic flights keep pooping up. More Airbuses and 747s should be able to fuel these flights.

VS recently announced their plans to begin services to Dubai, UAE, but I've heard nothing new on the Lagos service.
