Arik Air adjusts schedule to cope with aircraft maintenance, regrets inconvenience

ARIK AIR has said that due to mandatory  maintenance on its aircraft it has adjusted its scheduled operations to cope with the exigencies and has sued for understanding while it regrets any inconvenience.

The airline’s fleet has witnessed a reduction in number in the last two weeks due to the fact that some aircraft have been flown overseas to Approved Maintenance Organisation (AMO) in Europe.

The management stated that in order to maintain schedule integrity and ensure flights depart on time, it had to cut down on the number of flights operated daily.

The airline further stated that as a safety conscious airline, it takes aircraft maintenance very seriously. It however assures its customers that the aircraft will start returning from maintenance in the next few days while scheduled operations will be back to normal in a couple of weeks.

The Chief Executive Officer of Arik Air, Captain Roy Ilegbodu elaborated: “We regret any inconveniences that our customers may suffer due to this schedule adjustment. We are almost done with the checks and our customers will start seeing the effect with improved services.”

The airline appealed to its customers to bear with it at this period while assuring that their safety and comfort will not be compromised.
