Arik Air says it will resume flight operations to Maiduguri, Borno state capital via Abuja, from May 9.

In a statement signed by Adebanji Ola, spokesman for the airline, Arik said flights to Maiduguri will operate thrice weekly – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Ola said there was the possibility of increasing the frequency in the coming weeks.

“Passengers can book online at for affordable fares or visit any Arik Air City/Airport Ticket Office for reservations.”

He sai improvement in the security situation in the region necessitated the resumption of flight operations to Maiduguri international airport.

Roy Ilegbodu, Arik Air’s chief executive officer, said the recommencement was informed by the flight’s commitment to serving its customers.


“As a major carrier in Nigeria, we owe it a duty to serve the interest of our esteemed customers who have been yearning for our return to Maiduguri,” Ilegbodu said.

“We once again pledge our commitment to high safety standards, on-time departure and quality customer service as we return to this route.”

In December 2013, Arik Air, largest carrier in Nigeria and West Africa, suspended operations to Maiduguri due to security reasons.
