Arik Air relaunches flights to Monrovia

Arik Air has resumed flight services to Monrovia, Liberia.

Flights to Monrovia were suspended in July 2014 in the wake of the outbreak of Ebola virus disease in some West African countries.

Arik Air will be operating three weekly flights from Lagos to Monrovia via Accra, Ghana on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Outbound flights will depart the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at 07:20 and arrive in Accra at 07:20.

The flight leaves Accra at 08:05 and arrives in Monrovia at 10:05.

Arik Air chief executive Michael Arumemi-Ikhide commented: “We are pleased to welcome back our passengers on the Lagos-Monrovia route and want to assure them that their safety and security is always our top priority.”
