International Flights grounded as aviation handling company NAHCO embarks on Strike 

by Mitchelle Uzorka


Several international flights at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) have been grounded as staff of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company Plc (NAHCO) began a strike action over salary increment today January 23.


Lindaikejiblog reports that many travellers arrived at the airport this morning and were shocked when the airport staff informed them they will not be working as they are on strike.


Nahco officials handle all things that concern check-in, boarding and ramp services for several international airlines including Air France/KLM, Qatar, Ethiopian Airlines, Delta Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, Turkish Air.


The striking members had met with their management on Sunday January 22, but the deliberations yielded no tangible results, hence they proceeded with the strike this morning.


Although, the Ministry of Aviation is yet to comment on this development as of the time filing this report.
