Nigerian Arik Air To Buy Four Bombardier Q400 Airliners

( Bombardier Aerospace announced today that Lagos, Nigeria-based Arik Air has placed a firm order for four Q400 high-speed turboprop airliners. The value of the contract, based on the list price of the Q400 airliner, is approximately US $ 104 million.

Arik Air will offer a two-class interior in its Q400 airliners by configuring its aircraft with 10 seats at 34-inch (86.4 cm) pitch and 62 economy class seats at 31 inches (78.7 cm). Arik Air’s current fleet includes four Bombardier CRJ900 regional jets with 10 business class seats and 65 economy class seats in a spacious cabin.

It also operates three CRJ200 regional jets. The airline currently serves seven routes in Nigeria which will rise to eleven before introducing African West Coast and Intercontinental destinations later this year.

Arik Air is a wholly owned Nigerian airline with a commitment to the people of Nigeria to deliver new standards in aviation. In October 2006 Arik Air introduced the first new commercial aircraft into Nigeria for over 20 years.

The Carrier is flying domestic routes throughout the country before leading up to a full network of eleven destinations and three international routes on the African Continent. The airline also plans to commence intercontinental routes from Autumn 2007. Source:
