Staff demands fallen Indochina Airlines pay back salaries   2010-02-13 - VietNamNet/VNA, VOV

Employees at Indochina Airlines, which had its license revoked last month for financial incompetence, hadn’t paid their salaries for months. 


On January 25, tens of Indochina staffers submitted proposals to the airlines’ leaders, asking for clear explanations as to why they hadn’t been paid. But the company did not respond, the newswire reported on Wednesday.


Indochina hasn’t pay hundreds of staffers salaries since last October and it owes each of them an estimated tens of millions of dong.


Disgruntled employees said were facing increasingly harsh complaints and verbal abuse from customers who couldn’t get their tickets refunded after the airlines’ license was withdrawn.


Local news website VnExpress recently reported that the airline had to refund 1,450 tickets worth nearly VND2 billion (US$108,000) for passengers who bought tickets for flights between January 26 and March 23.


VietNamNet had contacted key officials of the company about the staff’s complaints . But officials said they could not comment and they also had yet to receive several months’ salary.


Indochina Airlines General Director Ha Dung, meanwhile, couldn’t be reached, the newswire reported.


Opening its service in November 2008, Indochina had postponed a plan to resume flights several times since its service was suspended last November due to both technical and financial problems.


The Civil Aviation Administration last month revoked the company’s license, saying the carrier was no longer capable of maintaining its service.


According to the agency, Indochina still carried debts totaling VND30 billion ($1.6 million) to service providers.
