Arik Air says it will resume flight services to the Sam Mbakwe Airport, Owerri, from Oct. 21.
The airline announced in a statement signed by its Chief Executive Officer, Capt. Roy Ilegbodu, on Monday in Lagos.
He said the re-launch of flights to Owerri was coming on the heels of resumption of services to Warri by the airline on Sept. 6.
“We made a promise to our esteemed customers that we will be returning to the routes that were suspended earlier in the year and our resumption of flights to Warri and now Owerri is a promise kept,” he said.
“In the coming weeks, the airline will be returning to more previously suspended destinations as well as opening more routes to cope with passengers’ demands,’’ Ilegbodu added.
