Air Nigeria has suspended its operations for the next 12 months and sacked a substantial number of its workforce. The suspension is set to commence from September 10, 2012.

The management of the airline which operates national, regional, and international routes revealed this in a statement released yesterday by its chairman, Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim.

According to reports, he said it is increasingly difficult to continue investing in an airline bedeviled with “staff disloyalty” and an harsh operating environment.
Ibrahim said about 50 “loyal” workers from various departments of the airline had been selected with a mandate to recommence business within a year.

He stated that other employees are considered relieved of their appointment.

He said: “Corporations are like individuals, who naturally will get sick. The usual thing to do is to admit them in hospitals, either for corporate surgery or for treatment, as the case may be.

“During such periods, it is not likely that they will work in full capacity, depending on the nature of the illness.”

He, however, assured the public of the airline’s resolve to return to full operations saying, “We are strongly committed to ensuring that Air Nigeria survives.”

The airline advised passengers to contact agents from whom they had purchased tickets for a refund.
