Arik Air is expanding its domestic services with the inauguration of non-stop flights between Kano and Enugu
Arik Air, West Africa’s largest commercial carrier, is expanding its domestic services with the inauguration of non-stop flights between Kano and Enugu. This is the first time an airline will be connecting the two major cities.
Announcing the new service today, Arik Air’s Managing Director, Mr. Chris Ndulue said the non-stop flight between Kano and Enugu is the first scheduled Arik service not originating from any of its hubs in Lagos and Abuja.
Ndulue elaborated: “Arik Air is pleased to connect the cities of Kano and Enugu. With the inauguration of the non-stop service, passengers don’t have to connect in Abuja or Lagos anymore, but can now fly between Kano and Enugu in just one hour and twenty minutes”.
The new service will operate three times a week on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. From Kano the flight leaves at 2:35 pm and arrives in Enugu at 3:55 pm. The return flight leaves Enugu at 4:25 pm and arrives in Kano at 5:45 pm. Tickets are sold from just 15,000 Naira and can be booked online on www.arikair.com or via your local travel agent.
A Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft will be deployed on the new route. Arik Air has configured this jet to 74 seats only in order to allow for more leg room and aisle space than any other similar category aircraft in the region. This adds additional comfort for passengers. The leather seats are both comfortable and luxurious, and the smooth, quiet and environmentally friendly aircraft provides a relaxing and stress free journey.
