Il semblerait que les compagnies du pays soient très endéttés. Après avoir fait le ménage au niveau sécurité, voila que le gouvernement doit s'attaquer aux finançes des compagnies.


The operations of Associated Air were grounded yesterday in Abuja due to the airline's failure to reconcile its accounts with the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).

FAAN's spokesman, Akin Olukunle, said in an interview explains that the action became necessary because the airline had rebuffed all appeals to settle its debts.

It was also gathered that FAAN stopped Arik Air's operations, a development that forced the airline to quickly reach a truce with the agency.


Olukunle stated that while Associated Air remained grounded, Arik Air was allowed to fly after it pledged to make some payments.

In his reaction to the development, the media relations officer of Arik Air, Ola Adebanji confirmed the situation saying: "We were only grounded for few minutes after which we settled for reconciliation and started flying immediately."

Airlines owe FAAN more than N2 billion. Recently, the agency wrote to Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) requesting it to prevail on its members to defray the debts or face its (FAAN) punitive action.

That would be our pledge, demonstrating the willingness of Lufthansa to cooperate with partners. As we do in East Africa, we want do the same in West Africa. If Arik or any other airline is strong enough and professionally managed well enough it would be lovely and perfect to work together.

Je ne serais pas non plus étonné qu'il y ait une bouderie de la part de l'entourage du président Goodluck (ne riez pas c'est son prénom) Jonathan envers les propriétaires d'Arik. Ces derniers ont pu très bien se mettre à dos Mr Jonathan parcequ'ils ont refusé un "cadeau" à un "petit" cousin :evil: Qui est aller chialer chez son oncle de président. Mais ça, on ne le verra jamais écrit !

La compagnie supprime OUA, Bamako et Cotonou après seulement 20 jours d'opérations . Luanda disparait, Abu Dhabi est suspendue, du moins les résas ne sont plus dispo et pour finir le Abuja LHR est supprimé. Apparement, il y aurait eu des soucis, au niveau des slots.

Surement, car pour suspendre des liaisons aussi si rapidement (je parle de l'Afrique), c'est qu'il y a forçément un souci. De toute façon, comme pour la plupart des compagnies du pays, Arik Air a de lourdes dettes.

La compagnie a stoppé l'ensemble de ses vols domestiques. Voire à l'arrêt total selon les dires du Seattlestimes

Arik Air collapse threatens Boeing orders
The Nigerian airline has pending orders for both 747-8 jumbo jets and 787 Dreamliners.

In a blow to Boeing's order book, West African airline Arik Air has ceased operations indefinitely amid chaos in Nigeria's aviation sector.

The Associated Press reported that Arik Air cancelled its flights Thursday after men rampaged through its maintenance hangar at the International Airport in the Nigerian capital, Lagos.

The airline's executives blamed employees of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria. The airport authority in turn blamed the raid on unions upset over unpaid salaries. And the union alleged corruption and non-payment of wages, according to AP.

A spokesman for the country's Aviation Ministry later told AP that Arik was using the disruption of its flights as an excuse to try and escape paying money owed to the federal government.

Arik was one of the few remaining airlines operating in Nigeria. It is one of only three airline customers with orders for the passenger model of Boeing's new jumbo jet, the 747-8.

Boeing has pending firm orders from Arik for two 747-8s, eight 737s and seven 787-9s

Les vieux démons Africains.... :twisted:

Shuttered Arik Air Accuses Aviation Minister Of Demanding 5% Share

Officials at Arik Air, whose domestic flight operations across Nigeria were grounded earlier today, have claimed that the carrier was forced out of business for refusing to part with 5% of its corporate shares as Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah, demanded.

Today, the beleaguered airline circulated a text message accusing Ms. Oduah of vindictively fomenting crisis within the airline for denying her demand to receive a stake of 5% in Arik. The text message read, “Due to persistent hostility of the Ministry of Aviation, with a minister who is demanding a 5 percent equity in a business where she has no investment...and FAAN management, which has culminated in the use of FAAN staff to stop the airline operations and lock in checked-in passengers in Lagos this morning, Arik Air has suspended all domestic operations until further notice. This issue [borders] on personal interests and not payment of bills; since FAAN has been collecting.”

Speaking this evening to SaharaReporters, a senior official of Arik defended the airline’s account of the source of the company’s woes. “It is a pity that a minister can cause so many problems for an airline just because she did not have her way,” the official said.

Ms. Oduah is regarded as one of the closest ministers to President Goodluck Jonathan. In the 2011 general election, she served as treasurer for Mr. Jonathan’s campaign. The Arik source claimed that the minister pressured owners of the airline to hand her a 5% stake in the ownership of Arik, asserting that she was making the demand on behalf of President Jonathan.

The shady and crisis-prone airline is believed to be owned by interests who benefited massively from grand corruption during the administration of Governor Peter Odili of Rivers State and the tenure of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The source at Arik also accused the Aviation minister of instigating Arik workers to go on a strike that grounded the airline’s domestic operations today. The workers reportedly went on strike to pressure their employers to pay debts owed the Federal Aviation Authority of Nigeria (FAAN). “Is it not curious that workers at a private airline are going on strike to demand that their employer should pay debts owed to the federal government?” our source asked. He added, “That should tell you that something fishy is happening, and also who is behind the nonsense.”

Another source in the aviation industry said she agreed with Arik’s assertion that Ms. Oduah was behind the airline’s trouble. She told SaharaReporters that Ms. Oduah’s actions against Arik were related to the recent controversial decision to let Dana Airline resume flight operations after one of the airline’s planes crashed early June in a heavily populated area of Lagos, killing close to 170 people.

“We have received reports that minister received hundreds of millions of naira [in bribe] from Dana authorities to restore their license to operate,” said the source. She added that the Dana management was actually surprised by the urgency with which their airline’s license was restored. “You should bear in mind that Dana had not paid a quarter of the insurance payments to families of the casualties in the June 3rd crash of Dana Flight 992 in Lagos,” said our source, an aviation expert. She said it was eye-opening that the management of Dana issued a statement claiming that they had not bribed anyone to influence the restoration of their license.

The aviation source also recalled that the restoration of Dana's license coincided with a bizarre order by a federal high court judge effectively stopping a coroner inquest that was initiated by the Lagos State government at the prompting of Femi Falana, a human rights attorney.

The controversial court order arose from a suit filed in Lagos by a hitherto unknown group by the name of “Civil Aviation Round Table Initiative.” In a curious twist, the federal government took the same position as Dana in its response to the lawsuit. Shortly afterwards, the Jonathan administration restored Dana’s license as Ms. Oduah openly declared that the government had made a huge mistake in suspending the airline’s license in the first place.
Ms. Oduah is also believed to be the spirit behind a renewed effort by the federal government to create a national airline for Nigeria. The country has had a terrible record of maintaining a national carrier, with previous attempts hobbled by bureaucratic bottlenecks, financial mismanagement, and poor technical management.
