The development was confirmed by in a statement by the spokesperson of the Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON), Jude Nwauzor, on Tuesday.

He said: “The strategic business decision is meant to realign our operations and refocus on satisfying our domestic and West Africa and other international passengers.

“It will also present Arik with excellent opportunity to engage and discuss with creditors who have become restive since the intervention and have also understandably exhausted their patience due to non-payment of accumulated debt and non-performance on services and contracts.”

Nwauzor also confirmed that all international passengers affected will be refunded.

“To our international creditors, Arik is most grateful for your patience and understanding.

“We reassure them that all pending issues with the airline will be duly addressed as a matter of priority as we plan to engage them in this regard.

“We appeal to all passengers to kindly bear with us as the decision is to ensure that the airline adheres strictly to international aviation best practices,” he said.
