Due to an aeroplane shortage, Azman Air has temporarily ceased operations.
Magaji Misau, the company’s HR manager, made the announcement in a memo.
The airline requested that all employees take unpaid leave in a memo titled “Placement of Leave Without Pay,” with the exception of the eight individuals whose names are provided below.
“As you are aware, our domestic operations has been put on hold for a while due to the conveyance of our aircraft for C-checks and the MROs has given a longer time of completion,” the letter reads.
“In light of the foregoing, management has ordered that its decision that all employees have been placed on leave without pay as of August 1, 2023 be put in writing and communicated.
Finally, you can be confident that you will be called back to active duty as soon as the necessary arrangements have been made.
Engineers Nuraddeen Aliyu, Zakaria Al-Najjar, Peter Abraham, Aliyu Suleiman Gambo, Thomas Foloronso, Usman Muhammad Sabo, Sabiu Sabo, and Magaji Mohammed Misau were exempted from the mandatory leave.
Azman Air had its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) revoked by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) last year for failing to be renewed.
In the first three months of 2022, the airline’s AOC was no longer valid.
