Arik Air resumes flights to Cotonou, Douala
ARIK Air, West and Central Africa’s largest carrier is resuming flight services to Cotonou, Benin Republic and Douala, Cameroon from Monday, January 19, 2015.
Flight services between Lagos, Nigeria and Cotonou/Douala were suspended last year in the wake of the outbreak of Ebola Virus in some parts of West Africa.
Arik Air will be operating four weekly flights from Lagos to Cotonou and Douala on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Outbound flight departs Lagos at 11:15 am (local time) and arrives in Cotonou at 11:45 am (local time). The flight leaves Cotonou later at 12:30 pm (local time) to arrive in Douala at 2:00 pm (local time). From Douala, the inbound flight departs at 2:45 pm (local time) and arrives in Cotonou at 4:15 pm. The flight thereafter leaves Cotonou at 5:00 pm and arrives in Lagos at 5:30 pm.
Arik Air’s managing director, Mr Chris Ndulue commented on this development: “We are pleased to return to Cotonou and Douala after the brief period of suspension of flights. We thank our guests for their loyalty and promise that we shall not renege on our pledge to provide world-class experiences and services which are safe, reliable and continually contribute towards the quality of life in the region.”
