Arik Air introduces complimentary chauffer drive for Business Class customers in the UK

Arik Air, Nigeria and West Africa’s largest airline is to enhance its business class offering to customers in the UK with the launch of the dedicated chauffer drive service. The new scheme will officially commence on 1st May.

Chauffer drive’s door-to-door service collects a passenger anywhere within a 50 mile radius of London, Heathrow and drives them to Terminal 4 using a fleet of new, climate controlled vehicles where customers can enjoy plenty of space and comfort as well as receiving free daily newspapers and free Wi-Fi access.

The new scheme only applies to UK booked and originating Business Class passengers on the London, Heathrow – Lagos route. Once a customer has purchased a business class ticket, then the passenger, or their travel agent, must contact the dedicated the Arik Air chauffeur drive line, on 0844 482 2320, to arrange the collection details and time. Chauffeur drive is not available on Arik Air business campaign fares. The passenger will receive an SMS notification confirmation of the booking at the time of booking, a day before departure and when the driver is 15 minutes away from pick-up and when the chauffeur is outside the pick-up point.

Simon Cook, VP Sales UK & Europe, commented on the introduction of the chauffer drive:

“We are delighted to introduce this new, very convenient service for our Business Class passengers and I am sure that it will be well received. The new product is another example of Arik Air offering its customers the very best in expediency and comfort with a reliable door-to-door service, thus removing all the stress of travelling to and from the airport.”
