Arik Air to Resume Direct Abuja-Accra Operations

Nigeria's and West Africa's largest carrier, Arik Air, will resume daily flight operations between Abuja, Nigeria and Accra, Ghana from Monday, July 17, 2017, the airline announced.

According to a statement by the airline, flights between Abuja and Accra were suspended in March following the closure of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja for runway repairs.

The Abuja-Accra flight will operate daily with a 5:30pm local time departure out of Abuja and 7:40pm local time departure out of Accra. A 91-seat Bombardier CRJ-1000 has been rostered to operate the service.

According to Arik Air’s CEO, Captain Roy Ilegbodu, the re-introduction of the Abuja-Accra operation is part of Arik management’s strategy to optimize flight schedule and respond to the needs of their customers.

“Arik Air has been at the forefront of providing customer-centric services since our inception and we will continue to respond to the needs of our customers at all times”, he said.

Customers can visit for best fares or go to any Arik Air City Office of Airport Ticketing Office for their ticket reservation.

It will be recalled that Ghana’s leading carrier, Africa World Airlines (AWA) on 26 June, 2017 commenced a daily direct service between Accra and Abuja using an Embraer ERJ aircraft.
