Arik Air will resume normal flights operations on Wednesday, the airline has said, hours after announcing the suspension of its services.

The company’s Public Relations and Communications Manager, Olabanji Ola, told PREMIUM TIMES Tuesday night that the airline will notify passengers and customers that flight services will resume at 11 a.m.

“Our normal schedules resume 11 a.m. on Wednesday,” Mr. Ola said. “We’re already sending out messages to this effect.”

The update comes hours after the airline —whose fleet of 28 aircrafts touches 18 airports across the country— announced an indefinite suspension of operations, causing a panic amongst thousands returning to their bases after the Sallah holidays.

The cancellation left thousands of travelers stranded as the Sallah holidays ended.

Arik blamed a delay in perfecting insurance paperworks for the disruptions.

Mr. Ola said the delay in “approval of documentation” was caused by the public holiday which was followed a “long weekend”. maintenance of its fleet.
