Nigerian Eagle Airlines To Partner With Delta Air Lines
Nigerian Eagle Airlines signed a MOU with Delta Air Lines to explore the possibilities of commercial cooperation. The marketing agreement should result in sharing frequent flyer programmes and in a codeshare partnership. An agreement would enable customers from Nigerian Eagle Airlines’ domestic and regional network to connect to Delta’s transatlantic flights to Atlanta and New York.
Nigerian Eagle Airlines is trying to strengthen its position in Nigeria by entering interline and codeshare alliances with several (African) airlines. For Delta a partnership with Nigerian Eagle Airlines would counterbalance the strong position of Arik Air in the West African market.
