The management of Arik Air (In Receivership) has apologised to passengers whose travel plans were disrupted yesterday as a result of picketing of operations by some disgruntled staff.

The airline stated that the picketing was illegal and had 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).

The management strongly condemns this action and has assured all stakeholders of a safe and conducive working environment.

It also stated that it was 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.

Customers with valid tickets who could not fly on Monday can modify such tickets at no cost for future travels.
