Strategic Fleet Adjustment: Arik Air, one of Nigeria’s leading airlines, has made a significant move in its ongoing receivership process by announcing the removal of the CRJ 1000 aircraft from its fleet. This decision reflects the airline’s commitment to optimizing operations and streamlining its aircraft portfolio.
Collaborative Decision: The CRJ 1000, registered as 5N-JEE, was owned by JEM Leasing Limited, in partnership with Export Development Canada as its financiers. Both parties have decided to sell the aircraft, with the buyer’s intention being the dismantling of the plane. Arik Air, which had been leasing the CRJ fleet since 2014, had ceased operating it in 2019.
Unwavering Commitment: In response to concerns from stakeholders, Arik Air has released a statement through SY&T Communications Agency in Receivership. The statement assures all stakeholders, including passengers, partners, and the general public, that the sale of the aircraft will not impact the airline’s day-to-day operations or compromise its unwavering dedication to providing safe, reliable, and convenient air travel services. Arik Air emphasizes that it will continue to prioritize the needs of its customers and partners, ensuring a seamless travel experience.
