Nigeria: Bi-Courtney Assures Arik of Hitch-Free Operations At MMA2

Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), operators of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal Two (MMA2), has assured the management of Arik Air of seamless passenger facilitation, as the airline begins its scheduled flight operations from the terminal to Port Harcourt International Airport on Saturday.

Spokesman of BASL, Steve Omolale, said with its spacious ticketing and departure hall, as well as modern facilities, such as automated check-in counters, smooth escalators/elevators, waiting ambulance, health facilities, lounges, restaurants and shops, "MMA2 remains a safe, secured and efficient passenger-friendly terminal to provide exceptional services to Arik's guests to Port Harcourt and the best destination for other flying passengers and shoppers.

"We want to assure all the passengers who will be flying Arik Air from this Saturday of seamless facilitation as we welcome all of them to our terminal," Omolale said.

Chief Executive Officer of BASL, Captain Jari Williams, expressed delight at the move by Arik, saying MMA2 would continue to offer passengers using the terminal hitch-free facilitation and the ambience that would make their flying experience worth the while.

Arik Air had earlier said its flights to and from Port Harcourt International, hitherto operated from the General Aviation Terminal (GAT), will cease from Saturday and resume at 7am at MMA2. Two other flights will follow at 11am and 3pm same day.

With this move, Arik Air will join Dana, Aero, Med-View, Azman and First Nation airlines, which have been operating scheduled flights from MMA2 over the years.

Arik Air currently flies Chevron chartered flights from MMA2 to the Nigeria Air Force (NAF) Base, Port Harcourt. With the scheduled flights from Saturday, all the airline's flights out of Lagos to and from Port Harcourt will now operate at the terminal.
