An industrial action by the members of staff of Malawi Airlines has left dozens of passengers stranded at the Kamuzu International Airport in the capital, Lilongwe.
The workers downed their tools over deductions in their November 2020 salaries.
All Cabin crew and other auxiliary staff converged on their head office at Golden Peacock in Lilongwe to demand answers from the management over the “unarranged” deductions.
The strike affected the only weekly flight from Lilongwe (through Blantyre) to Johannesburg, South Africa, which was scheduled to have taken off by 8.10am.
The airline was grounded in March following the coronavirus outbreak.
It resumed flights in October.
