The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has assured the general public and airline operators that the ongoing strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has not affected the Nigerian airspace.

NAMA spokesman Abdulahi Musa said this in a statement on Tuesday.

According to Mr Musa, operations of the agency remain uninterrupted as contingency arrangements have been put in place for processing of flight operations in the five major airports in Lagos, Kano, Port-Harcourt, Abuja and Enugu.

He said NAMA would continue to provide its services to airline operators in spite of the ongoing strike action, in keeping with its mandate to provide uninterrupted, safe, efficient, and economic air navigation services in the country.

At the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) terminals, there were skeletal activities while filing this report though there were no union officials at the MMIA.

Also, some international flights had been cancelled while Hajj 2024 intending pilgrims were seen hanging around the airport.

One of the potential pilgrims, Ogunlana, said no one had come to address them or passed any information to them.

“We are just sitting around and waiting for information, I cannot speak on anything, we were supposed to move today but nothing has been said,” she noted.

Aero Contractors,min a statement posted on its X account on Tuesday, said all flights scheduled had been cancelled due to the strike by the NLC, TUC and their affiliates.

United Nigeria Airline also apologised on its X account for the disruptions, stating that the ongoing strike had not allowed its aircraft to depart.

The nationwide indefinite strike commenced on Monday and activities were still grounded at the domestic terminals I and II.
