The management of Arik Air (In Receivership) has apologised to all its customers whose travel plans were disrupted by the picketing of our operations by some disgruntled staff on Monday, September 14, 2020.
The airline in a statement signed by its manager, PR & communications, Adebanji Ola, said the picketing was illegal and has no backing of the aviation unions whose leadership have embraced dialogue by attending mediatory meetings called for Tuesday, September 15, 2020 by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
Ola stated that, “the management strongly condemns this action and once again assures all stakeholders of a safe and conducive working environment. We shall also protect the interest of the flying public for a safe, friendly and on time travelling experience.
We are already working with the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Ministry of Aviation and Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) to resolve all pending issues with the unions and a section of the staff”.
He said customers with valid tickets who could not fly on Monday can modify such tickets at no cost for future travels.
Ola stated further that the management of the airline is working to bring the situation under control as the public will be advised accordingly.
