Arik Air management declares 300 staff redundant

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 have been contacted to negotiate a redundancy package for the
affected staff.
It is important to note that over 50% of Arik Air’s workforce of over 1,600 staff have been on furlough in the
past six months on a base allowance.
Decisions to let go off staff is naturally a difficult decision. Arik Air wishes the impacted staff well in their
future endeavours.
