Arik Air to halt flights to London

Nigeria’s biggest carrier Arik Air has indicated it will be forced to halt its daily flights between Abuja and London because it was being prevented from getting arrival and departure slots at UK airports.
Arik Air had leased from BMI at Heathrow airport but they were about to expire and the airline states that it is now facing unspecified “restrictions”.
“Whilst it is regrettable to have to suspend our services between Abuja and London, we simply could not continue with the route due to the restrictions placed upon us in accessing arrival/departure slots into UK airports,” Arik’s chief executive Michael Arumemi-Ikhide, said in a statement on Friday.
