Arik Air, which is under the management appointed by Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) yesterday announced that it has reduced flight fares for its Lagos-Abuja routes. A statement from the airline also said it has reduced the price of its Lagos to Accra one-way ticket from N51, 240 to N43, 000.
“Arik Air has introduced pocket-friendly fares on the Lagos-Accra and Abuja-Accra routes,” the statement read. “You can now enjoy great fares when you fly Arik Air to Accra, Ghana from Lagos or Abuja. “From N43, 000 you can buy Lagos-Accra one-way ticket and N62, 000 for Abuja-Accra one-way ticket.” Flights on the Abuja-Accra route previously cost N84, 180.
“Tickets can be purchased online at www.arikair.com or at any Arik Air city office, airport ticketing office or any travel agent or call 01-2799999 for reservation,” the statement read. “Arik Air flies twice daily from Lagos to Accra at 7:00 am and 5:00 pm and daily from Abuja to Accra at 5:30 pm. Recall that the Assets Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON) took over the management of the airline in February over bloated debts estimated at over N300 billion.
Arik Airlines which is Nigeria’s largest domestic airline, resumed flights on the Abuja-Accra route in July after the closure of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, for the rehabilitation of the runway.
