Nigeria’s Arik Air is to add a Cotonou connection to its daily Lagos-Dakar service
The city in Benin will be a stopover on the route from 10 March.
From the same date, the Lagos-based carrier will extend its daily Abuja-Accra service to include a stop at Dakar.
Both routes will be operated with Bombardier CRJ900 configured with 10 business-class and 64 economy-class seats.
Arik plans to upgrade both to a Boeing 737-700 service for the start of the summer season.
