Emirates and Arik Air currently have a one-way interline agreement, whereby Emirates passengers are connected throughout Nigeria and West Africa via Arik Air's current domestic and regional network.

The MoU was signed earlier this by Adnan Kazim, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Planning, Aero-political and Industry Affairs, and Chris Ndlulue, Arik Air's Managing Director, at Emirates Group Headquarters in Dubai.

Emirates and Arik Air will also explore other areas of cooperation for the future, including frequent flier programmes, passenger and cargo handling.

Nigerian Arik Air operates an extensive domestic route network in Nigeria, and regionally across Western Africa from its twin hubs in Lagos and Abuja, and to Johannesburg in South Africa and inter-continentally to New York and to London from its Lagos hub.

Emirates flies to more than 140 destinations in 81 countries across six continents. It operates the world's largest fleet of Boeing 777 aircraft and Airbus A380s.
