- Air Peace has approved a 100 percent increase in its workers’ salaries.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that it was jubilation galore for workers of Air Peace as the airline approved salary increase ranging from 10 to 100 percent to different categories of its staff.
The workers were thrown into a jubilation mood when they got an increase in last month’s salaries.
The excited workers, who could not hide their joy, embraced the Chairman and CEO of the airline, Allen Onyema, when he arrived at the domestic terminal of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Friday.
According to the airline, the increment was coming despite the present harsh operating condition induced by COVID-19 pandemic with most of its aircraft stranded abroad.
Speaking, the Cabin Services Manager, Florence Opiah, said the workers of the airline were excited because the increment was not expected.
“The increase even came at a time when we are not operating many flights.
“We used to operate 135 flights a day but now we operate relatively fewer flights and he still gave us such increase across board, to everybody. It was shocking. We could not believe it.
“The raise will boost the morale of the workers to dedicate themselves more to the company,” she said.
Opiah added, “There were even some workers who were contemplating going for greener pastures. I am sure they will stay back now and more people from other airlines will be pushing to come in.
“I will like to really thank our Chairman. We have been praying for him. God will continue to protect him. He remains a pacesetter. We can never take his kindness for granted.”
The Chairman of the airline, while speaking on what motivated him to approve the payment increase, said the move was borne out of his desire to make the workers happy and always proud working with the airline.
