ARIK Air, yesterday, resumed normal flight operations, 24 hours after aggrieved union members shut down its premises.
Spokesman of the frontline carrier, Adebanji Ola, in a statement, also tendered the airline’s apology for the disruption of flights caused by the activities of the unionists.
He, however, noted that normal operations resumed in the early hours of yesterday, as the airline successfully conducted all its scheduled flights into and out of Lagos.
“The management of Arik Air is pleased to announce the resumption of normal flight operations after Monday’s disruption by a group of unionists. All our early morning flights for Tuesday, September 15 operated in and out of Lagos on schedule and other flights for the day will operate as scheduled.
“Passengers with tickets who could not fly on Monday can modify such tickets at no extra cost to travel at any time. We thank our esteemed customers for their understanding, confidence and support during this period,” part of the statement read.
It would be recalled that members of the National Union of Air Transport Employees, NUATE, and Air Transport Senior Staff Services Association of Nigeria, ATSSSAN, who areArik’s staff, had downed tools early Monday morning.
The joint union members were protesting against the alleged non-payment of salaries since April, after placing 90 percent of its members on compulsory leave.
