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.

International Operations: Senate heeds Onyema’s call, set to probe multiple designation

Let me make this clear, Air Peace will never be able to combat international aero-politics without the support of the government. We can only combat it if our government supports us. It is a shame that several Nigeria airlines have come here (Dubai) and they were pushed out either through unfair competition or some arm-twisting tactics, it is very unfair. The only plan we have is the plan of sustainability, to sustain our operations to the best of our abilities. That is so far as we can go, if we are not supported. So Air Peace needs the support of everybody.
