Arik slashes long haul fares

21 October 2013, 12:34

Lagos - Arik Air, West and Central Africa’s largest commercial airline, has reduced the fares on all its long haul routes as part of activities to mark seven years of commencing flight operations.

The routes include Lagos-London Heathrow, Lagos-Johannesburg and Lagos-New York. According to the airline, guests traveling between Lagos and London will be able to buy a return economy class ticket from N41 990 and Business class ticket from N355 139.  A return Economy Class ticket on the Lagos-New York route starts from N97 062 while Business class ticket on the route starts from N487 892. On the Lagos-Johannesburg route, a return economy class ticket starts from N38 437 and Business class from N326 553.

The fares are exclusive of all taxes and charges. The last ticket day is October 31 while the outbound travel period is between October 14 and November 15.

Commenting on the anniversary promotion, Arik Air’s Managing Director, Chris Ndulue, explained that the promotional fare is the airline’s special way of thanking its esteemed guests who had remained loyal to the carrier over the years.

“When we set out seven years ago, our aim was to become a Nigerian airline that Nigerians would be proud to fly. Now, we have been firmly established as West and Central Africa’s largest carrier and the fastest growing airline in Africa. Arik Air not only connects Nigeria with eight countries in West/Central Africa and serves London Heathrow, Johannesburg and New York JFK from Lagos, it also connects 20 destinations within Nigeria - a domestic network that no other airline can match. It is therefore appropriate that all our guests should have the option to avail of this special offer for travel across our long haul routes.”
