The Federal Airports of Nigeria (FAAN) workers’ union on Wednesday morning disrupt the operations of Arik Airline at the General Aviation Terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.
Workers of the airline were prevented from gaining access to their duty posts thereby disrupting the day’s operations.
The action by the workers’ union is connected with the long-standing and unsubstantiated claim by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) of spurious indebtedness of the airline to the agency which is now before a Federal High Court in Lagos at the instance of FAAN.
For several months, the management of Arik Air and FAAN have been meeting to reconcile payment accounts between the two institutions. The reconciliation process is still ongoing until the latest actions by the union.
