The signs are ominous at Air Nigeria, raising doubts about the fate of the troubled flyer owned by controversial business man, Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim.

The embattled airline has terminated the appointments of many of its pilots and engineers, according to a report in the Lagos-based Daily Independent. This is happening less than a week after Air Nigeria’s domestic operations were grounded by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) over alleged insolvency.

About 12 pilots and engineers who belong to the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE) were sacked by Air Nigeria on Monday, according to the newspaper. NAAPE President, Isaac Balami, who confirmed the sack, said Air Nigeria may have drawn the battle line with the association.

“Sources said the decision to sack the pilots and engineers may not be unconnected with the recent strike embarked upon by them,” said the newspaper. “They had alleged that the management not only delayed their salaries, it has also not been remitting the pension funds deducted from their salaries for seven months.”

Air Nigeria currently has 12 aircraft, made up of two E-190, five B737-300 and four B737-400 and one Airbus A330-200 leased for its London operation from Egypt Air.

But the fleet may soon become depleted as the airline’s lessors are said to be planning to repossess five Boeing 737-300 aircraft over non-payment of accumulated monthly rentals.
