Dana Air has elevated two members of its flight crew to the rank of captain, while urging them to sustain its safety standards.
Speaking during the decoration of senior first officer Jonathan Okoli and Tosin Ayeni as Captains, Dana Air’s Chief Operating Officer, Ememobong Ettete, said “this upgrade is well-deserved having scaled the requirements to be promoted to the rank of a captain.”
“The rank of a captain comes with enormous responsibility. Not everyone can achieve this feat because you have to prove yourself overtime and pass all the necessary safety requirements and training to be promoted to this rank and Dana Air will continue to reward excellence, professionalism and hardwork.”
”The growth of every staff is one of the key things we focus on at Dana Air and I am proud to see that they were able to scale the rigorous tests and training from our dispassionate Training Standards Team and I am very confident that they will continue to maintain our high safety standards.”
The newly promoted captains reassured Dana Air that they will continue to fly safely in accordance with global best practices and maintain the airline’s safety standards while thanking the airline for elevating only on the basis of merit.
Dana Air is one of Nigeria’s leading airlines with a mixed fleet of Boeing aircraft and daily flights from Lagos to Abuja, Port Harcourt, Owerri and Enugu.
