Virgin Nigeria ceased flying operations in 2012. We suggest to book flights to and from Nigeria with:
Virgin Nigeria, Air Nigeria or Nigerian Eagle Airline was the national flag carrier of Nigeria and operated regional and domestic passenger services.
In September 2004, Nigerian Government and Virgin Group signed an agreement to establish a new airline for Nigeria called Virgin Nigeria. In January 2009, Virgin Nigeria announced they would suspend all long haul flights to London Gatwick Airport and Johannesburg. In September 2009, Virgin Nigeria announced they had rebranded as Nigerian Eagle Airlines.
In June 2010, the name was further rebranded to Air Nigeria, but unfortunately in September 2012, the airline ceased flying.
Previously, Virgin Nigeria operated a frequent flyer program called Eagleflier to reward regular travellers with the airline.
Air Nigeria was based at Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos.
