A Nigerian airline, Air Peace, has sacked over 70 pilots across its fleet.
It also reduced staff salaries by up to 40 per cent.
A member of the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers disclosed this to one of Punch correspondents, craving anonymity.
The source said the number of sacked pilots was between 70 and 75 in total.
The management of the airline, however, linked the pilots’ disengagement to the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pilots had, on July 22, protested a major pay cut after negotiations with the management over their remuneration broke down.
A statement issued on Monday by Mr. Stanley Olise, spokesperson of the airline, described the sacking of the pilots as “painful but rightful decision.”
