“Arik Air has introduced pocket-friendly fares on the Lagos-Accra and Abuja-Accra routes,” the statement read.“You can now enjoy great fares when you fly Arik Air to Accra, Ghana from Lagos or Abuja.
“From N43,000 you can buy Lagos-Accra one-way ticket and N62,000 for Abuja-Accra one-way ticket.” Before this reduction in airfare, flights on the Abuja-Accra route had cost N84,180.
The airline also announced where and how passengers could make flight bookings as well as purchase their air tickets for their trips at the newly announced rates online.
“Tickets can be purchased online at www.arikair.com or at any Arik Air city office, airport ticketing office or any travel agent or call 01-2799999 for reservation,” the statement read.
Arik Air flies twice daily from Lagos to Accra at 7:00 am and 5:00 pm and daily from Abuja to Accra at 5:30 pm.The current operations of Arik Air follow the foreclosure of the airline by the Assets Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON) in February, when the management of the airline was taken over due to high levels of debt estimated at an excess of N300 billion.
Arik Airline, which is Nigeria’s largest domestic airline, itself being a Nigerian-owned airline, resumed flights on the Abuja-Accra route in July after the closure of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja for the rehabilitation of the runway of the major Nigerian airline.
Being a Nigerian company, it is among Arik Air’s profile to provide quality flight services with the Nigerian people in view. Thus the recently announced reduction in airfare from Lagos, the commercial hub of the country, and arguably the country’s largest mainstream city, to other areas like Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, and Accra, Ghana, is a plus step in servicing its Nigerian passengers better, NigeriaNewsNg observes.
