Arik Air, West and Central Africa's largest airline, has emerged as the Company of the Year 2012 at the recent Leadership Annual Conference and Awards ceremony held at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.

During the star-studded event, the Board of Editors of Leadership Newspaper Group said the airline has redefined the scope, operational philosophy and depth of the aviation sector in Nigeria.

“Arik Air remains the unmatched local and regional carrier on the continent. At the heart of the airline’s operation is a management footing that places travelling guests first, even in an extremely challenging business environment,” the organisers observed in the award citation.

Earlier, the chairman of Leadership Group and organiser of the event, Sam Nda-Isaiah said the process of choosing winners for the various categories had been rigorous and painstaking. He added that he was very proud of this year’s choice of award winners.

The award was presented by the Gambian High Commissioner in Nigeria, Angela Colley-Iheme, and received on behalf of Arik Air by managing director/executive vice president Chris Ndulue.

Ndulue commented: “By adding the Leadership Company of the Year 2012 Award to our array of laurels, we have shown clearly that we are not relenting in our efforts at making Arik Air the airline of choice in this part of the world. We make no pretences when we say we are bringing world class standards in aviation to the region and will continue to improve on our services to the delight of our valued guests.”
