A statement released on Friday, March 24, by the Media Consultant to the airline, Simon Tumba said the NCAA brokered the peace meeting held on Thursday evening.

Tumba listed unions at the meeting to include the National Union of Air Transport Employees, Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria and National Association of Aircraft Pilot and Engineers.

The unions on Thursday, March 23, shut down the airline over refusal to reinstate sacked workers.

According to Tumba, the airline has resumed normal operations with effect from Friday morning on all routes.

He quoted Roy Ilegbodu, the Chief Executive Officer of the airline, as saying: "the management apologise to its customers for the disruption of services on Thursday following the picketing of its operations by the unions."

He added: "We reassure our customers of timely departure, great travel experience and look forward to welcoming them on board our flights."

Tumba also said the airline has reactivated its online platform for customers to book and pay online through all its network.

He explained that the airline's on time departure performance has improved by over 80 per cent in the last three weeks.
