Arik Air welcomes first of three A330 aircraft to fleet

Arik Air has increased the size of its fleet to 23 aircraft and boosted its London to Lagos route, with the introduction of a new Airbus A330-200 twin-engine aircraft.

While the new A330 will serve London–Lagos, the new plane could be deployed on one of a number of potential new routes to South America and the Middle East in future.

The A330 aircraft will compliment Arik Air’s long haul wide body fleet.

Fitted to offer the very best in-flight comfort and style, the new additions are an environmentally-friendly product that will provide the highest degree of operational flexibility and passenger comfort.

The A330s offer a two class configuration with 30 Premier Business Class seats and 187 Economy Class seats.

Commenting on the introduction of the A330s, Arik Air chief executive Michael Arumemi-Ikhide said: “We constantly review our fleet to ensure the services we offer to our customers remain competitive and provide the highest quality. The introduction of the new aircraft highlights our commitment to providing customers with the best product on our long-haul routes.

“This addition underlines our determination to strengthen our fleet and gives us the opportunity to expand our route network in the future.”
