The airlines have moved their passenger boarding and processing to the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) operated by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
The unions affected are the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) and Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of
Nigeria (ATSSSAN) and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE).
They are protesting the alleged sack of 24 employees who indicated interest to unionize, by the Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), operators of the MMA2.
Despite a subsisting court order issued by Justice I. N Buba of a Federal High Court in Lagos restraining them from the action, the unions continued to shutdown flights and business activities at the MMA2.
