Arik Air to Abu Dhabi and adds the biggest Boeing

Abu Dhabi is to be served from Lagos for the first time.  Rapidly expanding Arik Air, Nigeria’s largest international carrier, from 29 November will operate a three times weekly non-stop service connecting the UAE capital.  An Airbus A340-500 will be used for the flight with 36 full flat-bed seats in the premium cabin and 201 Economy.

From Lagos, Arik offers a number of West Africa destinations including the oil city of Port Harcourt and other Nigerian domestic destinations plus Côte D’Ivoire, Ghana and Senegal.

Arik Air has also announced that it has become the latest carrier to sign up for the brand new Boeing 747 Intercontinental, first deliveries of which are expected before the end of the year to Lufthansa. www.abudhabiairport.ae www.arikair.com
