Thousands of air passengers were left stranded on Monday as workers under the auspices of the National Union of Air Transport Employees and the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, Arik Air branch, grounded the operations of Arik Air nationwide.

A statement by the spokesperson of the airline, Adebanji Ola, said flights operated in and out of Lagos on Tuesday.
