Arik Air, West and Central Africa’s largest airline on Saturday November 9,2013 flew Nigeria’s Junior football team and FIFA under-17 world champions; Golden Eaglets to Abuja following their arrival from Dubai.
The victorious Eaglets arrived Lagos on Saturday night and immediately departed for Abuja onboard one of Arik Air’s state-of-the-art aircraft.
This gesture further demonstrates Arik Air’s commitment to giving back to society as a responsible corporate citizen of Nigeria. Arik Air in February 2013 flew victorious Super Eagles from South Africa to Abuja. Arik Air was also the lead sponsor at the recently concluded IBB Golf Club 2013 Independent Cup. Arik Air has also signed an agreement to sponsor up-and-coming Nigerian boxers, Larry Ekundayo and King Davidson in a WBO light-middleweight International Title fight this November and a Welter-weight fight early next year.
Arik Air understands that Nigerians not only love sports but are always united in the game of soccer and would therefore support any Endeavour that promotes the unity of Nigeria and Nigerians.
