United Airlines has appointed Oluwatomi Bola-Sadipe as Country Sales Manager for Nigeria and Ghana. Sadipe 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.
