Some passengers of Dana Air were yesterday stranded at airports across the country for several hours following a strike embarked upon by the airline’s pilots.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the decision of the pilots to disrupt the airline’s flight operations followed by a dispute they had with the management over welfare issues.
A NAN correspondent who monitored the situation at the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2 (MMA 2), Lagos, reports that some of the airline’s flights scheduled for the early part of yesterday were cancelled. Some of the affected passengers who had bought flight tickets said they had to make alternative arrangements to get to their destinations.
Dana Air’s Communications Manager Kingsley Ezenwa, who confirmed the development, said the issue had been resolved.
“The issue has been resolved. It was just a small miscommunication between Dana management and pilots.
“So, we are flying now and we apologise to our passengers for any inconveniences they might have suffered,” Ezenwa said.
