Lagos – A new Nigerian airline, Arik Air, has said that it would start operating flights from October 17, according to its managing director.

Alex Van Elk said that a call centre had been opened to deal with reservations and that the maiden flight would be between Lagos and Abuja in a CRJ900.

Elk said that the airline would soon service 10 destinations in Nigeria and 3 international flights to African destinations.

The new airline, which took over most of the resources of the former Nigerian Airlines Ltd, would look to expand it operations further by next year, said Elk.
