The statement, however, stressed that the airline was still operating its Lagos and Atlanta routes.

The statement reads, “Delta is suspending its nonstop service between New York-JFK and Lagos, to fit the current demand environment.

“The airline continues to operate service between Lagos and Atlanta and offers onward connections to New York and other cities across the United States.

“Customers impacted by our suspended New York-JFK to Lagos service will be re-accommodated on Delta-operated flights or services operated by our joint venture partners. Delta remains committed to the Nigeria market.”
