Nigeria’s largest airline Arik Air on Friday denied allegations that it had increased fares on its London Heathrow, New York JFK and Johannesburg routes.
The denial is contained in a statement signed by Arik’s Communications Manager, Mr Ola Adebanji, made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
It reads:” We wish to make it clear that we have not increased fares on any of our routes (international, regional or domestic) in the recent past.
“Also, we charge our fares in naira at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) official rate.”
It therefore advised intending travellers to book their tickets online at www.arikair.com, Arik Air airport and city ticketing offices or through the International Air Transport Association (IATA) registered travel agents.
