Arik Air offers a daily service.
Arik Air, Nigeria's leading commercial airline, has resumed services between Lagos and Jos, capital of Plateau State. The airline suspended its services to Jos on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 following the outbreak of militant activity in the area and the imposition of a 24-hour curfew in the troubled zone by the State government.
Arik Air’s Managing Director, Mr Jason Holt said earlier today: "The safety of our guests and employees is always paramount. During the three days, the airline's security team has been monitoring the situation in Jos closely and our local management has been liaising continuously with authorities. At this time, there is consensus that it is safe to resume our services."
Arik Air's Chief Commercial Officer, Mr Suraj Sundaram added: "The resumption of flights means that Arik Air once again offers our guests daily flights between Lagos and Jos. Flights depart Lagos at 11:55am, arriving Jos at 1:20pm while the return flight leaves Jos at 1:50pm and arrives Lagos at 3:15pm."

The airline serves 22 airports across Nigeria as well as Accra (Ghana), Banjul (Gambia), Cotonou (Benin), Dakar (Senegal), Freetown (Sierra Leone), Niamey (Niger), London Heathrow (UK), Johannesburg (South Africa) and New York JFK (USA).
