British flag carrier, Virgin Atlantic Airways, has pulled out of Nigerian routes.
The airline has also reportedly sacked all Nigerian cabin crew and shut its call centre in Ikeja, Lagos, the Nation reports.
Although, the airline is yet to officially announce its exit from the Nigerian market, an inside said the development might not be unconnected with disappointment by the airline management over failed promises by the government on its operations in the country.
The source said, “Virgin Atlantic Airways has laid off all its Nigerian cabin crew.
“They were only given three week’s notice and no severance package regardless of their length of service will be paid.
“The air-hostesses they sacked were about 20 and last year, they closed down their Nigerian call centre and let go of all the Nigerian staff.”
