Dana Airline announced on Friday that it would resume flight operations on November 9, 2022. This was made known in a statement issued on Friday by the airline’s Corporate Communication Officer, Kingsley Ezenwa.
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) had suspended the airline’s Air Transport License (ATL), and Air Operator Certificate (AOC) indefinitely with effect from July 20. The NCAA Director General, Capt. Musa Nuhu, said the regulatory body discovered that the airline was not in a position to meet its financial obligations and conduct safe flight operations.
However, the Account Manager of Dana Airline, Ememobong Ettete said the Airline would resume flight operations after a successful conclusion of the audit conducted by the authority. He stated that the audit, for the airline, was a re-engineering and restructuring process, noting that it has been successfully concluded.
Ettete said the audit was an extensive one, for the second time, stressing that the airline has a new management team in charge, meaning that Dana is was now well positioned, despite the current challenges, hostile economic environment to concentrate fully on strengthening its operations efficiently for sustainable growth.
He added that the airline remained committed to offering safe, reliable, and exciting flying experience to its loyal guests. According to him, customers with unused tickets, as a little token for its short absence from the market extended their validity for one year.
“A transfer option is available to customers, and we shall be offering competitive fares as always, and gifting free tickets onboard our flights for the next 30 days from November 9, 2022.
“There would be 24/7 customer service team always available to assist customers with any request of their choice on unused tickets and redemption. We wish to sincerely and once again tender our unreserved apologies to all our customers, vendors, travel partners, corporate clients for the abrupt suspension of our flights,” he said.
