Emirates has signed an interline agreement with Nigerian carrier Arik Air.

Under the new agreement, customers will be able to purchase joint Emirates-Arik Air itineraries, enabling them to connect seamlessly from Emirates’ double daily services to Lagos onto cities including Abuja, Kano, Kaduna, Port Harcort and Enugu.

Customers will also enjoy a range of added benefits, including special fares and an extra 10kg baggage allowance for Economy Class passengers connecting to points across Nigeria and beyond on Arik Air.

“Our new partnership with Arik Air opens up a wide range of West African destinations for Emirates customers, making travel more easy and convenient than ever before,” said Jean Luc Grillet, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations for Africa. “What's more, customers will enjoy even better value for money when they purchase their Emirates and Arik Air flights together.”

Customers can purchase joint Emirates-Arik Air itineraries by calling their local reservations office, travel agent or online. Customers will be issued with a single combined ticket for Emirates and Arik Air-operated flights and enjoy one-stop check-in and baggage transfer between the airlines.

Arik Air is one of Nigeria’s largest domestic airlines and operates a fleet of 23 regional, medium haul and long haul aircraft. The airline currently serves 30 airports across Nigeria as well as Accra (Ghana), Banjul (Gambia), Cotonou (Benin), Dakar (Senegal), Freetown (Sierra Leone), Monrovia (Liberia), London Heathrow (UK), Johannesburg (South Africa) and New York JFK (USA).
