Arik Air is to move all its Port Harcourt flights from the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) also known as terminal 1 to Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal 2 (MMA2) Lagos from March 17, 2018.
A statement from the airline explained that from that date, all daily flights to Port Harcourt International will cease to operate from the GAT) and will depart and arrive at MMA2.
The airline stated that the decision to move all outbound and inbound Lagos-Port Harcourt flights to MMA2 was informed by the need to enhance passenger flying experience.
Arik Air added that MMA2 offers spacious ticketing and departure experience, modern and functional escalators and lifts, adding that apart from these facilities , the terminal also has automated check-in, generous waiting space, lounges, restaurants and shops.
Arik Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Capt. Roy Ilegbodu, who elaborated on the change of terminal said, “We are daily reviewing our operations in order to give customers value for their money and enhance their travel experience. By moving some of our operations to MMA2, we are delighting customers with seamless travel.”
He explained that in addition to the four daily flights from Lagos to Port Harcourt International, Arik Air also operates one premium daily flight from MMA 2 Lagos to Nigeria Air Force (NAF) Base Port Harcourt.
Recalled that Arik Air had late last year opened a ticketing desk at MMA2 for customers who crave the on time departure and great customer experience that have become the trademark of the airline.
What the latest development means is that the feud between the airline and Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), the organisation managing MMA2 is over.
