Arik Air has returned to its normal operations after what it termed ‘disgruntled workers’ disrupted the domestic carrier’s operations on Monday.
Two unions in the aviation industry, the National Union of Air Transport Employees NUATE and the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria ATSSSAN led the airline’s workers on the industrial action to press home demands for improved welfare.
Arik Air Communications and Public Relations Manager, Mr. Adebanji Ola on Tuesday said the airline was 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, 15 September, 2020 operated in and out of Lagos on schedule and all other flights for the day will operate as scheduled.
Once again, we apologize to all our valued customers for the disruption to their travel plans on Monday and assure them of our resolve to continually adhere to safety standards” he disclosed in a terse electronic statement made available to journalists.
According to the document “Passengers with tickets who could not fly on Monday can modify such tickets at no extra cost to travel at any time.”
