Arik Air on Saturday said it was selected by the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) as the carrier to work with the Tour Operators for this year’s hajj exercise with an allocation of about 10,000 pilgrims spread across Abuja, Lagos and Kano.

In a statement by the airline’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Ola Adebanji, the carrier commenced the airlift of pilgrims in both Abuja and Lagos on Wednesday, June 14, 2023 and has lifted 374 passengers so far.

“The issues involved in the smooth operation of the airlift are currently being addressed by all parties involved; Arik Air, NAHCON and the Tour Operators. We hereby assure the pilgrims that as soon as we resolve the issues within the next 24 hours, the airlift will resume simultaneously in Abuja, Lagos and Kano,” Adebanji stated.

He appealled for the understanding of all concerned and apologised for the inconvenience the slow pace of airlift may have caused the intending pilgrims and all the parties involved.
