Arik Air Returns Last Leased F50
Arik Air returned the fourth and last wet-leased Fokker 50 to Denim Air. The Dutch airline is still operating three Dash 8-Q300s for Arik Air. It seems that the F50s are substituted by Arik’s own Dash 8-Q400s on the domestic routes, while it appears that Arik Niger ceased operations altogether. At least, no Arik Niger flights are bookable anymore on the website.
Update: According to Arik Air’s spokesman Ola Adebanji “Arik Niger has only suspended operations and will resume shortly”.
