Arik Air Deploys A B738 On The Lagos-Johannesburg Route

Arik Air‘s third A345-500 (CS-TQL; F-WWTH) will not be delivered before the end of the year. Therefore, the airline will deploy a B738 on the Lagos-Johannesburg route to free an A345 for the new Lagos-New York route.

The fares to Johannesburg have been lowered to a price of N65.000, but it will be difficult for Arik Air to compete with South African Airlines, which operates a B744 to Lagos. South African Airlines lost most of its business class travellers to Arik Air in the recent months, but may regain some customers in the coming period.
