Nigeria’s troubled flag, has announced the impending resumption of regional and domestic operations after weeks of being grounded by the country’s industry regulator.
“Air Nigeria has currently finalized its revival and growth plans to immediately recommence regional and domestic operations and the resumption of services will be announced soon,” the Management said today in a statement released in Lagos.
The statement disclosed that the airline’s staff had reaffirmed their “loyalty and back immediate recommencement of domestic and regional operations.”
According to the statement: “Following series of meetings between board, management & employees over the last few weeks, employees of Air Nigeria have reaffirmed their loyalty to safeguard the airline from external forces that have been trying to sabotage the airline's achievements of the last two years that culminated with the successful launch of the growth strategy on May 16, 2012, with the start of the Lagos London route.
“Air Nigeria staff have also established employees counsel that comprises representatives across all the departments of the airline. The employees counsel will regularly meet with the top management to discuss plans and performance of the airline as well as follow-up of issues that have been raised by staff. Employees have also assured their readiness for the immediate start of domestic and regional operations.
“We would also like to inform that the Lagos - London - Lagos flights are operating to schedule and are not affected by the temporary suspension directive of the NCAA. Passengers are therefore encouraged to proceed with their confirmed itinerary while intending customers can make their reservations through all our sales channels or by calling the contact centre.”
Transport & Business Express recalls that Air Nigeria’s local and regional operations were suspended on June 21 by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) over lean finances capable of compromising safety standard.
