Why Aero Contractors sacked 1,200 workers, Airline MD

The Managing Director of Aero Contractors, Capt. Ado Sanusi, has advanced a reason for the sack of 1, 200 workers of the airline during the week.

Sanusi in a statement issued on Thursday said the airline, which management has been taken over by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) had been grappling with huge and unrealistic personnel cost, as well as other operational challenges worsened by lack of enough aircraft to keep all the workers meaningfully engaged.

The statement reads in part, “The issuance of notification of redundancy is a business decision that will ensure Aero’s survival. The current situation where over a thousand people are basically not engaged due to lack of serviceable aircraft is not sustainable for the airline.

“The huge monthly salary associated with a bloated workforce will eventually kill the airline, which is not the intention of the current government.”

Prior to the sack of the workers, which represented 60 per cent of the airline’s 2,000 workforce, Sanusi stated that Aero Contractors had aircraft-to-employee ratio of 1:500, adding that workforce is the highest in the industry.

He said: “This decision will immediately reduce the whooping operational cost, which has been stifling Aero; enable the management bring in more aircraft through savings from overheads and pay for C-checks.

“It will also enable Aero have a more manageable and committed workforce in line with international best practices of 50 to 60 personnel to one aircraft unlike what obtains in Aero at the moment.”
