Air Nigeria and Delta Air Lines Apply For Codesharing
Following the codeshare agreement made between Nigerian Eagle Airlines (now Air Nigeria) and Delta Air Lines, the airlines have now applied with the US Department of Transport for authorisation to engage in codesharing services to the full extent permitted by the U.S.-Nigeria Open Skies Agreement. Delta is in the process of conducting a codeshare safety audit of Air Nigeria and will communicate the result of that audit to FAA. Air Nigeria requests that the Department approve its authority to display Delta’s code on its flights as soon as the FAA has advised that it has reviewed the audit report and found it to be acceptable. If permitted, Air Nigeria will place its VK-code on Delta-operated flights between Abuja and Accra and between Accra and Atlanta. The airlines are yet to agree on Delta codesharing on Air Nigeria flights.
