Nigerian Travellers Tagged as “biggest spenders” at London’s Heathrow Airport
In spite of the high poverty rate challenging the country, with over 70 percent of Nigerians living on less than $2 dollars a day, it is unbelievable to know that its riches, concentrated in the hands of a few are lavished on luxurious services abroad. One of such place where Nigerians tend to put their lavish spending act into display is the London Heathrow airport and its citizens have now gone as far as been ranked the highest spender in luxury retail and VIP services at the Heathrow Airport, Europe’s busiest airport.
Recent statistics by the World Bank show that Nigerian travellers who patronise this service spend an average of £1,059 (over N300,000) per visit on luxury retail. Heathrow’s VIP services on the other hand was originally designed for dignitaries such as Heads of State but it was discovered that the exclusivity offered was something many Passengers desired in their lives.
Making the service available to First Class and Business Class passengers now provides a quality experience that allows them enjoy a personalized service and passengers from Nigeria are not left out of this experience.
Heathrow Airport’s VIP Service is made available to First Class and Business Class travellers, flying on any airline to or from Heathrow. With the VIP service, travellers get a dedicated entrance to the airport, collection from the aircraft and transportation directly to the exclusive suite where luggage is delivered. Passengers also get assisted with their check-in, immigration and baggage collection procedures.
These exclusive offerings makes the service quite irresistible for Nigerian travellers who typically love being pampered.
