British Airways To Reschedule Lagos Flights

"British Airways said on Sunday it will reschedule its flights to arrive earlier in Lagos beginning January 1, after Nigeria's aviation ministry threatened to ground its operations there.

New Aviation Minister Babatunde Omotoba earlier this week warned the British carrier that its operations would be halted in Lagos from Friday if its flights from London continued to land later than 6 pm (1700 GMT).

"British Airways will be rescheduling the arrival of BA 75 from London to 1755 from 2105 from the 1st of January 2009. This is in response to concerns from its valued Nigerian customers on the late arrival time into Lagos," the company said in a statement.

BA said January 1 was the earliest it could make these changes, which will affect around 6,000 passengers.

Travel from the international airport to Victoria Island, the city's financial district, can take up to four hours depending on the traffic and armed robberies are common, especially during the evening.

Lagos, a city of 14 million people, is eager to improve its crime-ridden image, a major disincentive to investors in Africa's most populous nation."
