Arik Air To Get A330s

Arik Air will soon operate A330-200s on the Lagos-Johannesburg route, according to Rodger Whittle, the airline’s country manager for South Africa. However, the new aircraft are delayed and Arik Air currently deploys a B738 on the route as interim solution.

Earlier this year, Arik Air was in discussion with Kingfisher Airlines to wet-lease two A330s. It seems an agreement has been reached.

Update: The A330s should be delivered in January 2010. Arik may also wet-lease B777s from Jet Airways next year and start flights to Houston, Paris and Beijing. All to be confirmed.
