Arik upgrades to Lagos

Nigeria’s largest airline, and the biggest in West Africa, Arik Air, has increased the size of its fleet to 23 aircraft and boosted its daily London to Lagos route, with the introduction of a pair of new Airbus A330-200 twins.   
The A330s offer a two-class configuration with 30 Premier Business Class seats and 187 Economy Class seats.
The Premier Business Class product is carefully tailored to meet the competition on the route from British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.  Arik Air says that customers travelling in its executive class, a business/first suite, will be treated to an outstanding service, the finest cuisine and wines, turndown service with duvets, pyjamas, slippers, and luxury amenity kits.  IFE 17” screens are provided and a huge film and TV library.

Cuisine on board reflects the best culinary traditions of Africa, Europe and beyond, complemented by a world-class wine list.  The stylishly appointed ‘Kira Bar’ is the place to enjoy fine champagne, cocktails and to relax with companions or fellow passengers. 

Nigerians never seem to travel light.  Arik Air has one of the most generous baggage allowances in the world with the Premier Business Class allowance of three pieces of hold luggage at 30kgs each, giving a total of 90 kgs. www.arikair.com
