Nigeria’s Arik Air has been honoured with the prestigious Nigerian Aviation (NIGAV) Awards for the Best Air Crew of The Year 2017 (domestic route).
The award, which was presented to the airline at a well-attended ceremony held at Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos on Saturday, March 24, 2018, was given in recognition of the airline’s strict adherence to international standards for both cockpit crew and cabin crew.
Comportment, uniform, customer service and professionalism were part of the criteria used by the organizers to pick the best crew.
Commenting on the award, Roy Ilegbodu, captain and Arik Air’s chief executive officer, said: “We are excited by the award of the Best Air Crew of The Year 2017 and this is a further testimony to the great things that have been happening in the airline since the takeover by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) in February 2017.
“We are constantly training and re-training our crew members both within and outside the country. They have all imbibed the new Arik spirit, which emphasizes professionalism and team friendliness. The result is what we are witnessing”.
Arik Air boasts of a well-resourced crew training facility that ranks amongst the best in the industry.
