International flights at Lagos International Airport have been grounded due to a strike by NAHCO, the aviation handling company.

Several international flights at Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) have been cancelled as employees of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company Plc (NAHCO) went on strike today, January 23, over a salary increase.

 

Many passengers arrived at the airport this morning and were surprised to learn that the airport staff is on strike and will not be working.

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.

 

The Ministry of Aviation is yet to comment on this development.
