Arik Air has decided to temporarily suspend all flight operations between Lagos and Johannesburg effective immediately.

The decision to temporarily suspend ops was taken due to the ongoing dispute with South African Border Control and Port Health Authorities over the current protocol regarding presentation of Yellow Fever documentation upon entry to the country.

Due to this we are cancelling tonight’s (2 March) W3 103 LOS-JNB and tomorrow’s (3 March) W3 104 JNB-LOS. A decision will be taken tomorrow on operations for 4 March. Until the issue is resolved we are asking that passengers and travel agents keep up-to-date with latest information via our website or by contacting the local town/ sales office.
