Fly with Arik Air that this year celebrates its first decade as one of Africa’s successful airlines that emanated in 2002 with the purchase of a Hawker jet aircraft to simply get oil/gas personnel around Nigeria. It wasn’t long before another jet was needed and procured. In early 2006 Arik Air added to its fleet a further three new Bombardier CRJ900s, transformed the old airport to a state-of-the-art facility and welcomed the public through its doors on 30th October 2006. The airline’s fleet of 26 aircraft comprises Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Hawker, touching down at over 25 destinations. Check out great prices and make your Arik Air online booking now.
