Arik Air has adjusted its scheduled operations due to mandatory maintenance on its aircraft and sued for understanding while it regrets any inconvenience.

The airline further stated that as a safety conscious airline, it takes aircraft maintenance very seriously. It however assures its customers that the aircraft will start returning from maintenance in the next few days while scheduled operations will be back to normal in a couple of weeks.
The Chief Executive Officer of Arik Air, Captain Roy Ilegbodu apologized for the inconviniences adding that the checks conducted on the aircrafts will be over soon.
The airline also appealed to its customers to bear with it at this period while assuring that their safety and comfort will not be compromised.
