Virgin Nigeria to Launch This Month

The Virgin empire continues to grow…Virgin Nigeria, which is 49% owned by Virgin Atlantic, will launch London-Lagos (Nigeria) flights later this month, with intra-Africa flights started some time this year.  The airline would like to fly to the US, but they are currently in a fight with the US government over landing rights.


  1. well it is a welcome idea.with the scrapping of nigerian airways and birth of virgin nigeria with links of 49 percent of the running to virgin atlantic there is no reason to fear.Richard branson is a good manager and would not allow corrupt nigerians to run his interst in the businnes is a very lucrative route .i hope to fly it sometime this year when i travel to nigeria from london.

  2. Hello,
    i’m a Nigerian and my Dad is in the Bahamas Nassua.i have Bahamas visa so let me know if virgin Nigeria will get to Bahamas

  3. I am so excited about this development. Nigeria is the giant of Africa and I will like to see Nigeria take leadership in Africa in all fronts.

    This, well, is just a start but if well managed, I believe that it should overtake others like SAA and KQ.
    God Bless Nigeria.
