Recall that the airline was the first to commence commercial flights to Asaba when the airport was inaugurated in 2011, so their return to Asaba is nostalgic.
“Similarly, in the spirit of the Yuletide season, Arik Air will be increasing its frequency from Lagos to Owerri to thrice daily by adding a 7am flight to Owerri.
“The flights now will operate at 7:00 a.m. daily in addition to the 1:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. departures,” he said.
Speaking on the latest development, Ilegbodu said: “The resumption of flights to Asaba is a promise kept as we had assured our esteemed customers that we would be back on the route before the Christmas festivities.
“We once again assure our customers of a high operating safety standard and excellent customer service during the Yuletide and beyond.”
