Arik to resume Abuja-Accra operation


Arik Air, Nigeria’s largest carrier, says it will resume daily flight operations between Abuja and Accra, Ghana, from July 17.

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 repairs.

The statement said the Abuja-Accra flight would operate daily with a 5:30pm departure out of Abuja and 7:40pm departure out of Accra.

“The re-introduction of the Abuja-Accra operation is part of the management’s strategy to optimise flight schedule and respond to the needs of our valued customers,” Roy Ilegbodu, the airline’s chief executive officer (CEO), said.

“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.”
