According to recent studies by Heathrow Aiport, Nigerian travellers are the biggest spenders at Europe’s busiest aiport, Heathrow Aiport. This report follows on from a survey by Selfridges which tagged Nigerians as one of its biggest shoppers.

Heathrow’s Retail Director, Jonathan Coen;

“Heathrow’s VIP Service was originally designed for dignitaries such as heads of state but we recognised that the privacy and exclusivity that we offered is something that many passengers are looking for in their own lives … Making the service available to First Class and Business Class passengers, we now provide a quality experience that allows our passengers to enjoy a personalised service and we’re delighted to welcome many of these from Nigeria … “The Personal Shopping service is incredibly successful at Heathrow, especially with our international passengers. The service started in October 2013 with a five-member team and just over a year on, we have grown to 15 members who are on hand from the first to the last flight and offer assistance in 38 languages”

Heathrow Airport’s VIP Service, available to First Class and Business Class travellers, provides services like dedicated entrance to the airport, collection from the aircraft and transportation directly to the exclusive suite where luggage is delivered, assisted check-in, immigration and baggage collection procedures. No doubt Nigerians love luxury and can certainly afford it.
