Delta Airlines pledges to prioritise safety
One year of resuming operations to Murtala Mohammed International Airport, after a short hiatus due to COVID-19, Delta Airlines said it has continued to focus on the health and safety of its customers and crew on flights between the capital and the United States.
The American carrier which will soon mark its 14th anniversary of flying to Nigeria, has listed some of it’s good services to include how it’s customers in Nigeria had enjoyed uninterrupted service for the past 12 months after the airline was forced to temporarily halt its operations to Lagos at the height of the pandemic.
It also cited how the Nigerian customers had also seen enhanced safety measures during the meal service to protect themselves and crew.
“Despite this, Delta’s famous hospitality remains, including a choice of meal featuring African and American favourites, plus a huge array of on-demand entertainment that now includes playlists and podcasts curated by Spotify. The airline is also offering ticket flexibility until the end of the year should customers need to change their plans.
According to Delta’s Sales Director for Africa, Middle East and India, Jimmy Eichelgruen; “We know how important travel is to our customers and how much they missed it during the peak of the pandemic. As we returned to flying, keeping our customers and crew safe has always been our number one priority and offering daily service to the U.S. provides choice and flexibility when they are ready to fly again.”
Delta had last week announced the results of a study which showed that the risk of testing positive for COVID-19 while traveling after all passengers test negative 72 hours in advance of a flight is less than 0.1 percent.
Delta now flies daily to Atlanta, its biggest hub, from where there are dozens of same-day connections to cities throughout the U.S.
