Arik puts 1st three-abreast business class CRJ1000 into service

Arik Air has put the first Bombardier CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft configured with three-abreast business class seating into operation in an attempt to increase network service on its most popular business routes in West Africa.
Michael Arumemi-Ikhide, group CEO of Arik Air, claimed, “Configured to offer the very best inflight comfort and style for our passengers with 10 premier, three-abreast, business-class seats and 81 economy-class seats, the CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft also provides a high degree of operational flexibility to enhance our service, with a reduced environmental footprint to promote greener, more sustainable aviation.
“Deployed to increase frequencies between our more popular business routes from daily to twice-daily flights, we are also using the aircraft to launch a third daily flight on our popular Lagos to Accra service.”
