Strike: Arik Air resolves dispute with cabin crew

Arik Air

Arik Air says it had resolved its dispute with its workers who earlier embarked on strike.

The airline in a statement signed by its Communications Manager, Ola Adebanji, in Lagos on Friday said the work-to-rule action by its cabin crew disrupted the airline’s flights out of Lagos for some hours.

“The dispute has been resolved amicably and our operations are now back to normal with flights leaving for their destinations with minimum delays.

“We assure our customers, especially those traveling during this festive season that we will do our best to ensure they get to their destinations safely,” he said.

While apologising for the disruption in operations, Adebanji noted that the unfortunate event was a temporary setback to the new Arik brand.

He said that measures had been put in place to ensure hitch free operations during the remaining period of the Yuletide.

The cabin crew had downed tools Friday morning without prior notice over what they termed “non- increment of their salaries and allowances”, leaving hundreds of its passengers stranded across the country.
