A330 aircraft service was introduced in April 2010. The route ,launched in June 2009,was previously serviced by newly acquired Airbus A340-500 aircraft.Meanwhile, service on 17JUN10/18JUN10 was operated by Airbus A340-500,the plane that flew Nigeria’s senior national soccer team, the Super Eagles to Durban,South Africa for the 2010 World Cup.

Arik Air joined the Lagos-Joburg route following the exit last year of Nigerian Eagle Airlines and Bellview Airlines thus giving South African Airways a virtual monopoly.
