Azman Air sends its workers back to Labour market
Azman Air has suspended its operation indefinitely as a result of shortage of aircraft.
This was announced in a memo, signed by Magaji Misau, its Human Resource Manager.
In the memo titled: ‘Placement of Leave Without Pay,” the airline asked all of staff to proceed on leave with an exception of an under listed eight names.
The letter read: “As you are aware, our domestic operations has been put on hold for a while due to the conveyance of our aircraft for C-checks and the MROs has given a longer time of completion.
“In view of the above, the management directed to write and communicate its decision that all staff have been placed on leave without pay with effect from August 1, 2023.
“Finally, you should be rest assured that you will be recalled to duty as soon as everything is put in place.”
Those exempted from the compulsory leave were Engr. Nuraddeen Aliyu; Engr. Zakaria Al-Najjar; Engr. Peter Abraham; Engr. Aliyu Suleiman Gambo; Engr. Thomas Foloronso; Usman Muhammad Sabo; Sabiu Sabo and Magaji Mohammed Misau.

The airline’s AOC expired in the first quarter of 2022.
