Arik Air expanded its African network with the addition of its third route to Cotonou (COO), this time from Lagos (LOS) on 7 April. The 108-kilometre sector to the largest city and economic centre of Benin will be operated daily, utilising a mixed fleet of the airline’s 85-seat CRJ 900s and 131-seat 737-700s. The services then continue to Dakar, an existing route. In addition, Arik Air also serves Cotonou from Douala in Cameroon with daily flights. There is no competition on the new airport pair.
