Arik Air Will Resume Flight Operations Today September 14th

Arik Air, West and Central Africa’s largest airline, is pleased to announce that scheduled flights will resume from 11 am tomorrow, Wednesday September 14, 2016.

Members of the public and our esteemed customers are advised to discountenance the disparaging allegations, unsubstantiated and uninformed claims about the airline’s inability to meet its financial obligations to aviation fuel marketers and a purported withdrawal of insurance services to Arik Air by its insurers. 

While the current scarcity of aviation fuel (JET A1) has impacted on the operations of airlines in the country, Arik Air is in good standing with its fuel suppliers and has been meeting its obligations to them and to our insurers. With the regularization of the required documents relating to the renewal of the insurance, Arik Air will be resuming its normal flying schedule from 1100 hours on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.    

Arik Air regrets the unfortunate inconvenience caused to its customers and reassures our customers of expedient rebooking of any affected flights. 

*Both press releases of closure and opening have been documented.


  1. It is a good thing they let the public know what is really happening.

  2. Hmm,thanK God. But I hope they used the break to improve on services rendered!

  3. Hahaha. They just did not renew their insurance premium before expiry. And according to NCAA regulations, you fly without insurance cover, you incur a big risk of having your AOC suspended/withdrawn.

  4. Why is everything bad happening in this Vuharia's regime?...
    I'm happy they are back cos I don't want to hear that another set of people are now jobless!...

  5. @Lara. Ofcourse dia is scarcity of aviation oil(jetA1) u r not in d industry so u wouldn't know.

    1. Lara is right. There is no scarcity they just didn't renew their insurance and asked for extension. Sosoliso was on extension when they had D accident in 2005 which is why D families of d deceased didn't get paid

  6. Arik is super messed up, nevr mind this medicine after death they need to be penalised they get away with all sorts of rubbish

    1. you took the words right out of my mouth!! that airline needs to be sanctioned for a lot of nonsense they've put Nigerian travellers through in the past!
