Arik has tried hard to maintain a good and reliable service with the combined flight from Lagos to Jos and kaduna. The crew members are professional and efficient in handling the customers from the check-in counter and right on board the flight. Well done Arik. Keep up the standard. Any chance of reviving your Wings magazine?

These guys cancel flights and refuse to refund over one year. There was a time they cancelled about 6 flights I booked and I didn't get refund for more than a year. Their customer service is non-existent, you can even get to the airport and not see their kiosk after they have taken your money, they won't even apologise. The...

I booked this flight to travel from Lagos to Jos on the 3rd of July. The day before the trip I got an email that the flight had been "rescheduled" to the 4th.

The flight was smooth and despite the poor nature of the airport in Monrovia, it turned out to be a pleasant trip. The snacks served lived up to expectation for a short flight.
