Air Passengers Miss Flights as Arik Air Shuts Down
Air passengers who booked flights with Arik Air across the nation complained bitterly on the social media platform, Twitter for getting stranded as Arik Air flight operations were canceled. While some flights were delayed for more than 8 hours, others missed their flights till further notice.
The National Union Of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) shutdown the airline indefinitely few days ago and disrupted its operation on the grounds of workers who are entirely fed up over poor working conditions of staffs. Arik Air workers carried placards with inscriptions on it like “End Arik Brutality”. This shutdown also contributed to the fact that the airline laid off 300 members of its staff- due to the impact of the pandemic on the airline.
Apparently, the union and Arik Airline have been on a back and forth for more than a year now, staffs not being paid salaries, poor treatments on workers and over working condition on the remaining staffs who resumed after the lockdown.
Angry air passengers who were delayed and stranded did not take this likely at all as some of their plans were canceled.
The management of the airline sympathizes with its passengers over this and assured that missed flights will operate as scheduled.
