Arik Air is firmly committed to promoting the best of Nigeria and to supporting programmes that benefit the communities we serve, both at home in Nigeria and throughout the world.
We are dedicated to using our expertise in air transport to support organizations pursuing worthwhile causes in the markets in which we are active. As a responsible corporate citizen, Arik Air is proud to make contributions to support initiatives in the arts, sports and education, among others.
We are committed to training and developing local staff to help develop Nigeria’s skilled workforce. At home Arik Air has invested in cadet pilot training, created over 2,500 direct jobs for Nigerians and contributed to the growth of the nation by stimulating the country’s economy.
We recognize the importance of contributing to the communities we serve through corporate donations, sponsorships and other forms of support. Arik Air provides backing to a range of local and overseas community groups and charity organizations. We recently donated patrol van to Airport Police Command.
We were immensely proud to support the Nigerian national football team as the Super Eagles returned victorious from the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa. We are also pleased to help develop local sport at grass roots level. As part of our efforts to help strengthen Nigeria’s image as a world-class sporting nation, Arik Air is the proud sponsor of the emerging career of acclaimed boxer Larry Ekundayo.

Our state-of-the-art, young fleet allows us to operate at the height of efficiency and ensures that the effects of our operational activities on the environment are reduced, whilst helping to meet the increasing demand for mobility worldwide.
