Delta Air Lines to Relaunch Flights to Lagos

Delta Air Lines announced on Friday that it will relaunch service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Lagos, Nigeria, starting on Dec. 1.

Initially, the routes will operate daily, but beginning Jan. 16, 2025, they will transition to three times weekly. The service will utilize Airbus A330-200 aircraft configured with four cabins—Delta One, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort Plus, and Main. Currently, the carrier operates daily flights between Atlanta and Lagos.

In addition to the Lagos route, Delta will upgrade its aircraft serving Accra, Ghana, from JFK to the 281-seat Airbus A330-900neo in October. This upgrade will add nearly 1,000 more seats each week, increasing capacity between Ghana and the United States by 30 percent. The aircraft will feature a four-cabin configuration.

Furthermore, Delta will introduce the Airbus A350-900 on flights between Atlanta and both Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa. This upgrade will provide an additional eight Delta One Suite seats, totaling 40. The A350-900 aircraft will commence service on June 20 for Johannesburg and on Sept. 9 for Cape Town.
