Virgin Atlantic Cargo selects Nigeria's VN Cargo Connect as GSA

June 29, 2016: Virgin Atlantic Cargo has appointed VN Cargo Connect as its new general sales agency partner in Lagos, Nigeria. All dedicated sales activities are being coordinated at VN Cargo Connect’s Nigeria base at Murtala Mohammed Airport.

The airline operates daily Airbus A330 flights to and from Nigeria’s largest city and in 2016 celebrates 16 years of services between Lagos and London Heathrow.

With this appointment, VN Cargo Connect has increased the size of its sales team in Nigeria from seven to 12 people to maximise revenue opportunities for the airline and to meet its high standards for customer service.

Ryan Ellis, head of GSA Territory Management at Virgin Atlantic Cargo, said, “Lagos has been a popular passenger and cargo route ever since it joined our network in 2000. There is good growth potential in this market and we expect to see positive results from VN Cargo Connect’s investment in its sales team to support the Virgin Atlantic product and to ensure our customers continue to enjoy the best possible level of service.”

Mark Bright, head of Airline Contracts at VN Cargo Connect, added, “Virgin’s reputation for service quality and reliability, alongside its ability to offer quick connections over London to 12 major destinations in North America and trucking services to over 50 cities in Europe, means we have a strong proposition to offer the cargo community in Nigeria.”
