Operations at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS) in Lagos are disrupted as of Wednesday, October 10, due to an ongoing strike being held to denounce the dismissal of 20 employees who allegedly intended to join aviation unions. Terminal 2 is reportedly inaccessible as of Wednesday morning (local time), leaving passengers stranded. Flights are likely to be delayed or canceled throughout the day and potentially into the coming days, as the unions have threatened to continue their strike if their demands are not met. The protest has also caused traffic disruptions in the vicinity of the airport. An increased security presence has been reported.
Airlines affected by the strike include Arik Air, Medview Airline, Azman Air, Max Air, Dana Air, and Aero Contractors.
Travelers flying to, from, or through LOS are advised to confirm their reservations and to contact their airline for additional information.
