Arik Air is increasing its flight frequencies to key domestic destinations ahead of the Christmas and New Year festivities to cope with passenger demands.
To cope with demands on its Lagos-London Heathrow service, the airline is introducing a new wide-body A340-300 leased from Hi-Fly Portugal to supplement its two A330-200 aircraft.
The airline has decided to increase flight frequencies on the domestic routes to ensure that many Nigerians are able to travel home to share the joy of the season.
Arik Air connects 18 destinations within Nigeria, 10 in West/Central Africa and three international destinations enabling the airline to bring more Nigerian families together this festive season.
Instead of the average 100 daily flights normally operated, Arik Air will during the festive period increase its daily flights to an average of 120.
