Nigeria’s Arik Airline finally launches online check-ins

Nigeria’s Arik Airline, dubbed West Africa's largest commercial airline, has launched an online check-in service.

The online check-in service is planned to provide customers with the ability to check-in from 24 hours to three hours before their flights, select their seats and print boarding passes.

Passengers with baggage to check-in can still do so online and proceed to the check-in counters at the airport for baggage drop and standard security checks.

The service has been introduced in Arik Air’s international destinations - Johannesburg, London and New York - as well as the key domestic locations of Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt.

The full network coverage of domestic and regional locations is expected to be rolled out in the coming months.

Arik Air’s managing director and executive vice president, Chris Ndulue, has said the addition of the online check-in service is one in a series of upgrades to the airline's technology offerings planned for the coming months.

“As the number one airline in Nigeria, we have an obligation to our guests to ensure we utilise all forms of technology to improve our customer experience,” Ndulue said.
