The Aviation Union in the industry this morning grounded the operations of Nigeria’s carrier, Arik Air over what they described as a large debt of N12.5billion to Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria.
The unions shutdown the airline’s operations on Wednesday after a yearlong negotiations failed.
Passengers are the most hit following the dispute as hundreds of them could not embark on their journey.
Arik in a statement released said this is not the first time that FAAN workers’ union will be taking laws into their hands by disrupting its operations and that the airline is compelled to suspend all domestic operations for today, and this will remain in force until the unfortunate situation is resolved.
