Airlines in Nigeria said flights were being disrupted on Monday after ground staff began an indefinite strike to demand higher pay.

Air Peace, which has the biggest fleet in Nigeria, and smaller carrier Dana Air said the strike by the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) was delaying flights and hoped the issue would be quickly resolved.

“The strike has affected all operations of all airlines being handled by the company (NAHCO),” Air Peace said in a statement.

Both passenger and cargo handling activities were disrupted.

There were crowds at the passenger check-in counters as flight operations were suspended for the airlines that the company services.

British Airways and Qatar Airways, among the foreign airlines frequently flying to Nigeria, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The National Union of Transport Employees and Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria issued a notice last week that its members would go on strike from Monday to press NAHCO for better pay.
