COVID-19: FAAN Slashes Salaries Of Airport Workers

The Federal Government has slashed the salaries of airport workers in the country due to the ravaging coronavirus disease.

The Management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) made this known in a circular to staff dated May 19, 2020.

FAAN said the reduction in salaries was due to airport closures occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.

The memo signed by FAAN General Manager, Administration, M.D. Musa, read, “This is to notify all staff that due to the dwindling revenue generation amidst COVID-19 pandemic, management may not be able to pay full salary to staff as from May 2020.

“However, as soon as revenue improves, the balance will be paid. This measure is to ensure the survival of the organisation.”

Thelagostimes recalls that the country’s airspace and airports, both local and international, were shut in March by the President Muhammadu Buhari as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The President’s directive, however, permitted emergency flights such as those for medical and humanitarian purposes.
