Air Nigeria chooses Gatwick Airport to launch daily flight to Lagos

Gatwick Airport’s growth has continued with Air Nigeria beginning a daily service from Gatwick to Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, Nigeria.

Over the past two-and-a-half years, Gatwick has been transforming the airport through a £1.2bn investment programme to compete for airlines and grow passenger numbers.

The delivery of speedier check-in and security processes for passengers and the direct transport links into central London are just a few of the reasons why airlines, such as Air China, Korean Air, Hong Kong Airlines, Caribbean Airlines and Icelandair have chosen to operate from Gatwick this year.

“Air Nigeria’s preference to operate its London to Lagos route from Gatwick not only sends a strong message that Gatwick is competing but also that we have the spare capacity to grow,” said Gatwick Airport chief commercial officer Guy Stephenson.
