This means Arik Air will be able to assist with accommodating Emirates passengers from various Nigerian destinations (including Abuja) and other West African markets to Lagos on Arik Air’s flights for onward connection to the Emirates service from Lagos to Dubai.”
Arik Air’s interline agreement with Emirates Airline increases the travel choices for customers from Nigeria and West Africa to travel to various global destinations offered by the Emirates network.
