Delta Suspends All Flights To Nigeria Amid Protests, Curfew
Delta Airlines has suspended flights to Lagos, Nigeria, from Atlanta in response to the protests and a curfew.
Atlanta-based Delta operates flights to Lagos from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport with a stop in Dakar, Senegal.
The situation has intensified between people protesting against Nigeria’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad, known as SARS. Earlier this week, the protests against police brutality erupted into gunfire.
Delta told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that its customers and crew’s safety and security are its top priority and said it is working with customers affected by the flight cancellations to rebook them on other flights.
It’s unclear at this time when flights to Lagos will resume.
