Aviation Nigeria

Arik Air maintains its commitment to re-build its aircraft maintenance hangar in Lagos in partnership with Lufthansa Technik.

Last month a statement issued by the Arik Head of Communication, Mr Ola Adebanji in Lagos quoted the Chairman of Arik Air, Mr Joseph Arumei-Ikhide who said the partnership would also include the
Boeing Company as well as Bombardier, the Canadian aircraft manufacturer.

Ikhide also said when completed, the hangar would not only carry out major repairs of Arik aircraft, but other new generation aircraft in the fleet of other domestic airlines in the country, calling on the FG to  consider acquiring the Bombardier aircraft type for domestic operators in lieu of its proposal to acquire new aircraft for domestic operations in the country.

Mr Pierre Beaudoin, the President of Canadian aircraft manufacturer, Bombardier, said in the statement that the two companies started the partnership from the onset.
