Virgin Atlantic has once again stepped ahead of competition by unveiling the most affordable student fares in the Nigerian aviation market to two exciting destinations from Lagos.
You can now fly from Lagos to London at $212 and from Lagos to JFK airport New York at $324.
These fares are return and are exclusive of taxes, while Virgin Atlantic also offers a one way fare of $183 on the Lagos-London route to cap up this exciting offer.
However, terms and conditions apply.
Speaking on the development, Samuel Lindfield, Virgin Atlantic Country Manager said: “Virgin Atlantic as a brand is proud to support the dream and aspirations of young Nigerians and their desire to get global education and training that would prepare them for leadership roles in the future. It is in our DNA to promote opportunities that would help the Nigerian youths to prepare themselves for leadership roles, and also develop themselves for future challenges. The eligibility age for this fare is 16 years”.
He noted further that “this offer is open to students in secondary and post-secondary school institutions. It is in response to the current economic challenges in Nigeria which has made it imperative for parents and students to effectively manage their travel budget and plan for their future as they prepare for the challenges ahead. This fare is available in the economy class cabin and it offers an opportunity for these students to experience Virgin Atlantic’s quality service and award winning in-flight entertainment systems”.
Virgin Atlantic offers daily flights from Lagos to London Heathrow, and from London to the world through an amazing network of over 20 destinations, code share with other airlines and a joint venture with Delta Airlines.
Virgin makes your travel a little more fun and exciting with its afternoon tea on its flight from Lagos to London, more leg room and comfort in our Premium Economy cabin and a full flatbed experience in our Upper class cabin.
“All these combine to make travel with Virgin a unique experience”, Lindfield said.
