    I travel frequently with Arik Air and I don’t have a serious problem with their staff and services. Its overall value for money. I am however very excited to see another nigeria airline Medview Airline as a competitior in aviation industry. New service will challenge the monopoly of existing airlines and bring down their expensive air tickets. I look forward to travelling with medview airline this easter.
