Arik Air, Nigeria’s leading domestic commercial airline, has carried its three millionth passenger - a particularly impressive tally considering it has been operating for less than three years.

The airline, which now operates daily long-haul flights from Lagos to London and Johannesburg, commenced domestic commercial flight operations on 30th October 2006 and has fast become the largest commercial airline carrier in Nigeria.
