Arik Air plans to provide extra flights to key domestic destinations in response to customer demand over the festive season.
The additional flights will operate from 19 to 24 December. Instead of the average 120 daily flights normally in operation, the airline will increase its daily flights to an average of 140.
The key domestic routes that will be affected during the festive season are Enugu, Owerri, Calabar, Lagos, Abuja and Asaba. On the mentioned days, Arik will increase the frequency on the Lagos-Owerri route from twice to thrice daily, while Abuja-Owerri will increase from one to twice daily.
Similarly, the frequency on the Abuja-Enugu route will increase to twice daily, Abuja-Calabar to twice daily, and Lagos-Asaba to twice daily.
Last month, Arik increased the frequencies on some other key domestic routes like Lagos-Calabar, Lagos-Enugu, Lagos-Benin, Abuja-Benin, Lagos-Kano, Abuja-Kano, Abuja-Asaba and Abuja-Ibadan. (See story here.)
