Event

Operations at Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS) in Lagos continue to be disrupted as of Thursday, October 11, due to a strike ongoing since October 10 to denounce the dismissal of 20 employees who allegedly intended to join aviation unions. Terminal 2 reportedly remains inaccessible as of Thursday morning (local time). As such, affected airlines have moved their passenger boarding and processing to the General Aviation Terminal (GAT). Flights are likely to be delayed or canceled throughout the day and potentially into the coming days, as unions have threatened to continue the strike until their demands are met. An increased security presence has been reported.

Context

Airlines affected by the strike include Arik Air, Medview Airline, Azman Air, Max Air, Dana Air, and Aero Contractors.

Advice

Travelers flying to, from, or through LOS are advised to confirm their reservations and to contact their airline for additional information.
