Arik resumes services to Freetown


Arik Air will resume services from Lagos to Freetown (Sierra Leone) on 23 February, after flights were suspended in July 2014 at the outbreak of the Ebola virus in some West African nations. 

The resumed service will entail a new schedule with flights from Lagos to Freetown now routed via Accra (Ghana). Three weekly flights will be operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays using a Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft configured to carry 20 business class and 126 economy class passengers.

Outbound flights will depart Lagos at 07h20 and arrive in Accra at 07h20. The flight then departs Accra at 08h05 and arrives in Freetown at 10h30. The inbound flight leaves Freetown at 11h15 and arrives in Accra at 13h40. The flight then continues on to Lagos, leaving Accra at 14h25 to arrive at Murtala Muhammed International Airport at 16h25. All times are local.
