Benin airport closure: Arik Air increases frequency on Warri route

Consequent on the closure of Benin Airport to traffic for runway repairs by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Arik Air has said that it has increased flight frequency on the Lagos-Warri and Abuja-Warri.
Starting June 22, 2015, Arik Air is adding an additional frequency on the Lagos-Warri route to make three daily (Monday-Friday) flights. Weekend (Saturday/Sunday) schedule is increasing from one to two flights. Similarly, the five weekly Abuja-Warri service is increasing to daily with the addition of Saturday and Sunday flights.
The new schedule will be operated from June 22 to July 10 when the Benin Airport would be closed for repair works.
The additional Lagos-Warri flight will depart Lagos daily at 11:30 am and arrive in Warri at 12:30 pm. The inbound flight leaves Warri at 1:00 pm and arrives in Lagos at 2:00 pm. This is in addition to the early morning and late afternoon flights between Lagos and Warri.
Recall that FAAN had issued a notice to airmen (NOTAM) advising on  air travellers to take advantage of the Asaba Airport and the Osubi airstrip in Warri could be used as alternates to the Benin Airport.
