Arik Air is set to resume flight services from Lagos to Freetown, Sierra Leone from next month.
Flights from Lagos to Freetown were suspended in July 2014 at the outbreak of the Ebola in some West African nations.
The airline disclosed that the resumed service will entail a new schedule with flights from Lagos to Freetown now routed via Accra, Ghana.
According to the management of Arik, this will be a three weekly flight to be operated on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday using a Boeing 737-800 Next Generation (NG) aircraft configured to carry 20 Business Class and 126 Economy Class passengers. Outbound flights will depart Lagos at 7:20 am and arrive Accra at 7:20 am. The flight then departs Accra at 8:05 am and arrives in Freetown at 10:30 am. The inbound flight leaves Freetown at 11:15 am and arrives Accra at 1:40 pm.
The airline stated further that the flight then continues onto Lagos, leaving Accra at 2:25 pm to arrive into Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at 4:25 pm. All times are local.
Arik Air made its foray into Freetown in June 2009 and had operated uninterrupted until July 2014.
Commenting to the resumption of flight to Freetown, Arik Air’s managing director, Mr. Chris Ndulue said: “Arik Air is the dominant carrier in West and Central Africa and air travelers in this region look up to us to fly them to their destinations. We want to assure our loyal customers on the Lagos-Freetown route that we are back to deliver the safe, secure and reliable services that are the hallmark of Arik Air.”
