Ebola Virus: Arik Air Suspends Flights To Monrovia, Freetown

Arik Air

As a result of the first Ebola virus death officially confirmed in
Lagos, and involving a Liberian national who flew on a foreign
(Non-Nigerian) regional based airline from Monrovia via Lome (Togo) into
the city last week, Arik Air has suspended operations into Monrovia
(Liberia) and Freetown (Sierra Leone) effective today July 28, 2014.

The suspension will be in force until further notice. This decision
is a pre-cautionary measure aimed at safeguarding the precious lives of

“Arik Air is taking this important step as a concerned corporate
citizen bearing the interest of Nigerians at heart. We acknowledge the
steps that the Federal Government of Nigeria is currently undertaking to
prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus; however, we feel
especially compelled to take the business decision to immediately
suspend flight services into the two Ebola affected countries due to our
interest in the wellbeing of Nigerians”, said Banji Ola, spokesman for
the Airline.

He said at the early stages of the contagion’s development across
West Africa, the Gambian Government took the proactive decision to stop
airlines (including Arik Air) from bringing inbound passengers from
Monrovia, Conakry (Guinea) and Freetown into Banjul.

Hence, in line with the actions taken by the Gambian Government, we
trust (and are confident) that the Federal Government of Nigeria shall
take all steps necessary to control and curtail the spread of the virus.
We humbly suggest that as a first step, all inbound flights into
Nigeria which originate from any of the Ebola affected countries, be
immediately suspended. At Arik Air, our core vision and purpose is, “to
provide world-class experiences and services which are safe, reliable
and continually contribute towards both improved user quality of life as
well as the elevation of Nigeria’s global standing.
