Arik Air says it has reintroduced flights from Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja to Maiduguri, Borno state.
This will be effective from May 10, 2021.
The airline announced this in a statement signed by Adebanji Ola, public relations and communications manager at Arik Air, on Monday.
The statement noted that passengers traveling from Lagos can connect seamlessly to this service from Abuja.
The airline said flights will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Roy Ilegbodu, Arik Air’s chief executive officer, said: “We are delighted to reintroduce our services to Maiduguri, following popular demand by our customers for Arik’s presence in the city.
“Customers on this route should again expect the traditional Arik Air hospitality and exceptional service that have become the hallmark of the airline.”
In April, the airline announced the resumption of direct flights from Lagos to Kano.
Ilegbodu had said the decision to reintroduce direct flights between Lagos and Kano was due to the importance of both cities.
