British Airways, on Sunday, refuted reports that it was shutting down its services in Nigeria due to operating environment.
In a released statement, BA denied the reports and with a sound of diplomacy indicated that Nigeria remains a strategic market for the airline and will continue to operate in Nigeria.
Here’s what the statement says:
“Our attention has been called to reports in several newspapers Sunday that British Airways is considering an exit from Nigeria.”
“British Airways has a long history in Nigeria, having begun operations in the country 80 years ago as Imperial Airways. “Nigeria remains a strategic market for BA and our 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 to operate to Nigeria.”
