Dana Air gets listed on IATA GOM Registry

DANA AIR has been announced as the latest African airline to be listed on the International Air Transport Association (IATA ) Ground Operations Manual (IGOM) registry.

The International Grounds Operations Manual (IGOM) registry is for companies and airlines who have demonstrated full compliance with internationally recognized standards for ground handling processes.

The IATA Ground Operational Manual concept which was initiated by IATA, defines ground handling standards for airlines and ground service providers to ensure safe, efficient and consistent ground service activities.

According to IATA, ground operations are essential task for all airlines and ground service providers to deliver smooth turnarounds and on time departures, with safety being the number one priority. The IATA Board of Governors has set a target (50% of member airlines in 2006) to start to implement the IATA Ground Operations Manual (IGOM) as their minimum standard for ground operations.

Commenting on the airline’s latest achievement, Mr Obi Mbanuzuo, Dana Air’s Accountable Manager/ Chief Operating Officer, said Dana Air was listed after the international association confirmed its full adherence to global ground handling manual.

‘’ We are happy about our most recent international recognition, as an airline that adheres to global best practices. We thank the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for recognizing our ground handling safety standards and unwavering commitment to operational excellence.’’

”We wish to also take the moment to reassure our ever-supportive and loyal guests of our strong desire to continue to provide safe, reliable and affordable air transport service in Nigeria.’’

Having flown over 2.7 million passengers in the last 9 years of its operations, Dana Air is one of Nigeria’s leading airlines with over 27 daily flights from Lagos to Abuja, Port Harcourt, Uyo and Owerri.

The airline is reputed for its innovative online products, world-class in-flight service and unrivaled on-time departures.
