Arik Air said that it has carried out adjustment on its scheduled operations to cope with the exigencies of its aircraft that are on mandatory maintenance.
A statement by the PR & Communications Manager, Arik Air, Mr. Adebanji Ola explained that the airline’s fleet has witnessed a reduction in number in the last two weeks due to the fact that some aircraft have been flown overseas to Approved Maintenance Organisation (AMO) in Europe.
The management stated that in order to maintain schedule integrity and ensure flights depart on time, it had to cut down on the number of flights operated daily. The airline further stated that as a safety conscious airline, it takes aircraft maintenance very seriously.
Arik, however, assured its customers that the aircraft would start returning from maintenance in the next few days while scheduled operations would return to normal in a couple of weeks.
Speaking on the development, the Chief Executive Officer of Arik Air, Captain Roy Ilegbodu said, “We regret any inconveniences that our customers may suffer due to this schedule adjustment. We are almost done with the checks and our customers will start seeing the effect with improved services.”
He appealed to customers to bear with the airline at this period while assuring that their safety and comfort would not be compromised.
