British Airways has reiterated its deep-sitting commitment to the Nigerian market, describing it as it biggest in Africa and strategic for the carrier’s business plans.
In a statement, the airline refuted media report that it plans to stop operations to Nigeria over its $100 million trapped in the country.
It stated that publication in the media that the carrier had concluded plans to exit the country was untrue, stressing that it never issued any statement to the media indicating such.
The airline which said it has a long history in Nigeria, having begun operations in the country 80 years ago as Imperial Airways, maintained that Nigeria remains a strategic market for the airline, adding that its operations locally are very strong.
“We have not issued any statements at any time indicating that we are on the verge of terminating operations in the country. We will continue daily operations into Nigeria,” the airline said.
