Arik Air has reached reconciled Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Ltd (BASL), operators of the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2, by moving its Garden City Express operations to the facility.
The airline said the service would enable customers to fly direct to Port Harcourt City from MMA2
It said the daily flights service which commence on February 12, 2018 will depart from MMA2 and arrive at the Nigeria Air Force (NAF) Base Port Harcourt.
Commenting on the Garden City Express, the airline’s chief executive officer, Capt. Roy Ilegbodu said the service eliminates the almost one hour drive passengers arriving into the International Airport, Omagwa normally endure while traveling to Port Harcourt City.
“Arik Air maintains a well-resourced terminal at NAF Base Port Harcourt and assures passengers of premium customer service.
“We are delighted to offer this premium service to our customers who are time conscious and desire to cut the long drive from Omagwa to Port Harcourt City. This service will offer a great travel experience with our dedicated terminal at NAF Base Port Harcourt and efficient flight crew.”
This is Arik Air’s first and only scheduled flight departing and arriving in MMA2 Lagos.
The Garden City Express is an addition to Arik Air’s three daily flights from Lagos to Port Harcourt International Airport Omagwa.
It would be recalled that Arik had, since 2006 refused to move its operations to the terminal because of a business transaction between the former management of the airline and BASL management which went sour.
