The four aviation unions joining the strike are the National Union of Air Transport Employees, National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers, Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria and the Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals.

The unions asked their members to withdraw services from all aerodromes nationwide indefinitely.

With this, airspace may not be open for operations from Monday.

This was confirmed by the General Secretary of the National Union of Aviation Employees, Aba Ocheme.
