Air Nigeria’s operations disrupted by strike action
After six days, Air Nigeria has confirmed that its domestic and regional operations are being disrupted by an ongoing strike action by pilots and engineers. According to the airline’s management:
It is (…) illegal and criminal for NAAPE to allow itself to be used by competitors, who are envious of the giant steps already taken by Air Nigeria and Management is already working on a policy that will put a permanent stop to this cheap blackmail.
Air Nigeria’s flights to London are not affected by the strike and operate as normal.
- NAAPE has suspended the strike according to Air Nigeria. However, the airline remains grounded by the NCAA, whose officials will audit Air Nigeria before it can resume operations.
- On another note, the airline has postponed its inaugural flight from Lagos to Johannesburg from 17 June to 1 July 2012.
