Arik Air Puts Dash 8-Q400s Into Service
Arik Air has announced the entry into commercial service of its two new Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 aircraft (5N-BKU and 5N-BKV), delivered to the airline in October. The two Q400s are the first of four ordered by the airline. A third one (5N-BKW) is awaiting delivery at Toronto.
Arik Air’s fourth B738 (5N-MJQ; City of Calabar) performed test flights this week at Seattle. It may be delivered to Nigeria soon.
Will Arik Air commence flights to Lomé soon? If so, they would be to quick for ASKY Airlines, a new airline supported by Ethiopian Airlines, that announced starting flights in January 2010 with two B737-700s.
