Arik Air, unions resolve impasse, airline resumes operations

MANAGEMENT of Arik Air late Thursday  resolved the impasse with labour unions led by the Lagos State branch of National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE),  Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) and  National Association of Aircraft Pilot and Engineers (NAAPE) in a meeting mediated by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) this evening.

The airline in a statement has also announced the normalization of operations with effect from today, Friday morning on all routes.

The Arik Air management equally apologize to its customer for the disruption of services today following the picketing of its operations by the unions.
