Logistikzentrum Limited to support United Airlines in Nigeria as new Sales Representative
Airline prepares for start of new Lagos – Washington D.C. service in December 2021
United Airlines has appointed Oluwatomi Bola-Sadipe as Country Sales Manager for Nigeria and Ghana.
Oluwatomi will be supported by Logistikzentrum Limited, United’s new Sales Representative in Nigeria, as the airline prepares for the start of its new service from Lagos to Washington D.C. on 1 December 2021 (subject to government approval).
The airline will operate three weekly flights connecting Nigeria’s largest city to the U.S. capital, the only nonstop flight between Lagos and Washington, D.C. The new service marks United’s return to Nigeria, which the airline previously served up until 2016.
As United’s new Country Sales Manager for Nigeria and Ghana, Oluwatomi brings a wealth of industry experience having held various positions in the Nigerian travel industry. Before taking up her new role at United, Oluwatomi held the position of Head of the Sales and Account Management team at BCD Travel in Nigeria.
As United’s new Sales Representative in Nigeria, Logistikzentrum Limited will manage the airline’s new City Ticket Office, set to open later this month. Headed by Executive Director, Akeem Adewole, together with General Manager, Henry Mujota, previously Lufthansa Country Manager for Nigeria, Logistikzentrum’s team has a respected track record in the Nigerian travel industry.
“We are thrilled to be returning to Nigeria and proud to appoint Oluwatomi Bola-Sadipe as our Country Sales Manager. This new service to our hub at Washington Dulles provides our Nigerian customers with the possibility to connect to over 80 onward destinations across the Americas. I know just how important Nigeria is to the African Continent as a whole. We are bringing the most modern aircraft to serve this route with our award-winning United Polaris business service on board,” said Thorsten Lettnin, United’s Director Sales Continental Europe, India and West-Africa.
United will operate the new service from Lagos to Washington D.C. with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, featuring 28 United Polaris® business class lie-flat seats, 21 United Premium Plus® premium economy seats, 36 Economy Plus® seats and 158 standard economy seats. This flight is the only service between Nigeria and the U.S. to offer a premium economy product.
