Many companies have been affected by the spread of COVID-19. Earlier in March this year all Nigerian airways were shot down for a period of four months, not until they resumed flight on July 2020.

The press statement titled, “Arik Air management declares 300 staff redundant”, reads in part


“Arising from the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to the constrained ability of the airline to complete heavy maintenance activities and return its planes to operations, stunted revenues against increasing operational costs, the management of Arik Air (In Receivership) has declared 300 staff members redundant to its current level of operations.


“The leadership of the impacted unions has been contacted to negotiate a redundancy package for the affected staff.”
