Arik Air, West Africa's leading and preferred carrier has introduced a new scheme that allows for cheaper domestic fares through advanced purchasing across its domestic network. The new fares apply to tickets bought 14 days in advance of the required travel date by passengers and will be the best fare available to the customer.
The scheme is designed to encourage, and incentivize passengers to book in advance rather than purchase tickets on the day at the airport where fares are highest.
Customers will have to book and pay for their tickets at least two weeks before the intended date of travel. Tickets can be booked and paid for on-line at the airline's website or at any Arik Air point of sale.
Fares for domestic destinations start from N10,600 one-way to destinations like Jos and Sokoto from Lagos. With the new fare system, passengers can now pay as low as N14,750 for flights from Lagos to Abuja and N11,100 for flights from Lagos to Calabar.
A full list of destinations and reduced fares, along with the details of the applicable terms and conditions, can be obtained from the airline's website and ticketing offices.
Arik Air's Vice President Sales and Distribution, Mr. John Brayford said of the new purchasing ability;
"Arik Air has always been driven by quality and value and this is one more example of how we are adapting to meet the requirements of the traveling public. Customers are slowly moving away from last minute purchasing as there is an ever increasing demand to make travel arrangements well in advance. Our size, extensive network in Nigeria, combined with new products give us considerable leverage to offer such dynamic pricing. We believe this offer will give more of our customer’s greater flexibility of flights at very attractive prices across our entire domestic network."
