Nigerian carrier Arik Air said it was restarting flight operations from Wednesday morning after suspending them on Tuesday.

Airlines operating in Nigeria have had difficulty buying aviation fuel as a drop in the local naira currency has caused a fuel shortage.

Local media also reported that Arik had changed its insurance company.

Arik said in a statement that customers should “discountenance the disparaging allegations, unsubstantiated and uninformed claims about the airline’s inability to meet its financial obligations to aviation fuel marketers and a purported withdrawal of insurance services”.

Arik flies to destinations across Africa and to London and New York.
