Flights grounded, passengers stranded as NAHCO Workers begin strike across airports

 

Local and International flights across Nigeria’s airports on Monday morning were shut down as Nigerian Aviation Handling Company Plc (NAHCO) workers embarked on strike over salary increment demand.

Starnews Nigeria reports that at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos, NAHCO workers were not attending to passengers. They claimed they were on strike over alleged management’s failure to increase their salaries in the face of the reality in Nigeria’s economy.

Findings by our correspondents revealed that the strike affected flight activities across all the airports in the country as NAHCO workers across the board were not working.

At Abuja, Akure, Benin, and Portharcourt airports, passengers are currently frustrated as they have been kept outside the terminal building.

No one is attending to them and there was no information or announcements apart from workers who claimed they were not working because they are currently on strike.

Starnews Nigeria reports that NAHCO handles check-in, boarding and ramp services for several international and local airlines in the country.

The management is yet to issue a statement as more local and international flights have been grounded.
