About Arik Air

Arik Air is a privately and wholly Nigerian owned commercial airline operating both domestic and international flights and started operations in 2006. It is West Africa's leading airline. Arik Air flies to many destinations including London's Heathrow Airprt, and New York's JFK International Airport.

Arik Air operates from its two hub airports in Abuja and Lagos and its head office is located at the Arik Air Aviation Centre on the grounds of Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos State. In 2014, Arik Air developed and expanded a commercial agreement with Emirates by signing a MoU with the goal of providing customers seamless connectivity on each other's respective route network.

As of 2016, Arik Air is the largest carrier in West Africa, and serves a large network of destinations in Nigeria, Africa, Europe and US. The airline has become very reliable over the years, and cancellations are an issue of the past since they count with a fleet of over 25 aircraft. 

2016 marked the 10th anniversary of Arik Air's operation.  Their mission continues to focus on improving connectivity in the region and facilitate the movement of passengers across their network. 

Arik Air covers a wide range of destinations across three continents and is constantly seeking to expand to offer passengers the most complete selection of flights in West Africa. Just in 2016, the airline continued with its expansion plans and have begun flights to Libreville and Gabon. Airlines that also fly to Gabon include Gabon Airlines and Afrijet Business Service. The Gabon route is a special one because it has been many years since Nigeria has seen a direct flight to and from Gabon.

This is very important because both Nigeria and Gabon are Oil producing countries, so there are many businesses that have some sort of relationship with Gabon.
