Arik Air under the receivership of Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) has extended the cancellation of flight operations due to the curfew in Lagos State and some other parts of the country. As at the time of this report, not less than five states have imposed curfew to avert further destruction of lives and property.
A statement by the Public Relations and Communications Manager, Arik Air Adebanji Ola explained that all scheduled flights have therefore been cancelled until the lifting of the 24 hours curfew by the state government led by the embattled Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Governor.
It would also be recalled that the airline had earlier cancelled all scheduled flights for Wednesday, October 21, 2020 due to the 24 hours curfew announced by the Lagos State government on Tuesday. “Arik Air regrets whatever inconvenience the cancellations may have caused our esteemed customers. Further updates on flight operations will be given as required,” Ola’s statement added.
