Arik Air Announces Lagos-New York Flights
Arik Air will commence its three weekly service from Lagos to New York (JFK) on the 29 November 2009.
Flights will depart from Lagos on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays: 11:20 PM – 5:50 AM (Local time).
Return flights will depart from JFK on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays: 10:00 PM – 2:40 PM (Local time).
Arik wil deploy its third A345 (MSN 894, F-WWTH, CS-TQL) on the route. Hopefully, they can still wet-lease an additional two A332s from Kingfisher Airlines. Those could be used for the current routes to London and Johannesburg, as well as for the announced Abuja-London Heahtrow service that will start soon. This would enable them to go daily to JFK, using a second A345, and give them some spare capacity.
