United Airlines Cancels Only Flight to Africa – Houston (IAH) – Lagos, Nigeria (LOS)

by Adam

In a note to employees last week, United said that it intends to end service to Lagos, Nigeria on June 30th, leaving Delta as the only major US carrier flying to Africa. As per Bloomberg News, the airline plans to kill the route due to weakness in the energy sector as well as difficulty with the repatriation of money from sold tickets. The B787 used on the flight will move to the new San Francisco (SFO) to Tel Aviv (TLV) route which goes daily from 3x a week in October.
