Nigeria to Dubai

Arik Air, which claims to be West and Central Africa’s largest airline, is expanding its reach to the Middle East, becoming the first Nigerian carrier to offer services between its capital Abuja and Dubai.
 
The maiden flight is currently slated for 28 July and will subsequently operate five weekly flights on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from Nigeria and return on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from Dubai.  Routing is Lagos, Abuja and Dubai.
 
Current planning has the route operated by an Airbus A330-200.  The A330 will offer a two-class configuration with 30 Premier Business Class seats and 187 in Economy.

Arik Air, with extensive services through West Africa, operates daily from Heathrow to Lagos, and three times per week from New York JFK.

Dr Michael Arumemi-Ikhide, Arik Air Global Chief Executive Officer, commented: “This is another exciting moment for us all at Arik Air, not only launching a new international destination, but becoming the first airline to link the capital Abuja to Dubai. The importance of Dubai as the Middle East’s commercial capital makes it imperative for Arik Air to connect the city with Lagos which is Nigeria’s commercial capital."  www.arikair.com
