It has only 3 operating aircrafts and over 700 members of staff. That's the dilemma of the management of the airline as it seeks to improve operations.

The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) has threatened to disrupt Aero Contractors’ operations by Monday, March 20.

The union gave the management of the airline operators till Monday to recall over 700 sacked workers.

Olayinka Abioye, General Secretary, NUATE, on Friday described the sack of the workers as an exercise in “bad faith” to the industry and the country in general.

“By Monday, the whole world will know what is really happening in Aero Contractors. We are going to shut down the operations of the airline.

“There is no place in the world where people will work for 20 to 25 years and you will disengage them and ask them to go home empty-handed.

“This has never happened before, so it will not happen in Aero Contractors,” he said.

The Media Consultant to the airline, Mr Simon Tumba, who confirmed the development said the workers would be paid their pension and gratuity.
