Air Nigeria Grounded

Officials say Nigeria's second-largest air carrier has been grounded for safety checks following a strike by its engineers.

Harold Demuren of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority said on Wednesday that Air Nigeria would be able to fly again after investigators finished their checks. The investigation comes after engineers at the airline carried out an on-and-off strike at the carrier.

A spokesperson for the airline could not be immediately reached, though an operator at its call centre said the airline hoped to resume flights on Thursday.

The temporary grounding of Air Nigeria comes after a Dana Air flight crashed in Lagos on 3 June, killing all 153 people on board and others on the ground. A cause for that crash has yet to be determined.
