Medview Airline has once again sacked 60 workers after sacking 52 workers for lack of adequate aircraft for operations seven months ago.
The airline currently has one operational aircraft from its initial six, a situation, which led to retrenchment of workers.
Alhaji Isiaq Na-Allah, the Executive Director, Business Development of Medview Airline, attributed the latest sack of 60 workers to economic crunch.
He said; “Going by the realities of the prevailing economic situation, Medview Airline is currently restructuring in order to fully maximise its operation and prepare adequately for the challenges ahead.
“In the course of this exercise, some staff, about 60 in number, were required to step aside as a result of downsizing with a genuine intention to recall them back as soon as situation improves as stated in our letter to the affected staff.
“The decision by management on this exercise, though tough, is predicated on the need to achieve the best result with a minimum, but adequate work force. All the Staff affected have been adequately communicated.”
However it was gathered that no fewer than 40 of the affected staff were pilots, engineers, cabin crew and dispatchers, while others were administrative staff, just like in the previous retrenchment.
