Director General of Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority ( DG-CA), Captain Musa Nuhu has commended Dana Air’s operational procedure in informing the regulatory body of its due maintenance and grounding them accordingly.
This is as Dana Air has announced an increase in frequency across it’s destinations after some of its fleet returned from maintenance.
DG-CA who spoke on the airline’s procedure commended the airline during an interview saying, ” Dana Air grounded its aircraft to carry out maintenance checks on them.”
“They noticed that some of their aircraft were due for maintenance and they informed us accordingly. I think it is commendable for an operator to ground its aircraft for maintenance,” the NCAA boss stated.
Speaking on the frequency increase, the spokesperson of the airline Kingsley Ezenwa said Dana Air upon receipt of some of its aircraft from maintenance started with an abridged schedule but decided to increase frequency based on the airline’s commercial projections and demand.
He said, ” we have done our projections and based on demands, we have decided to increase our frequency on our Abuja route.”
“Also our recently introduced flash sale of 45,000 is still available for our customers who book early and plan their trips with us.”
Our commitment is to continue to offer superior options across our route network with a very convenient schedule, timing for our guests. He added
Dana Air is one of Nigeria’s leading airlines with a varied fleet of Boeing aircraft and daily flights to major cities in Nigeria.
