Dana Air Reopens Abuja Office

Dana Air office at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, has reopened for business, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The reopening of the office followed the lifting of the suspension clamped on the airline by the Federal Government after the crash of the airline’s plane on June 3 that killed everyone on board.

An official of the airline, who pleaded anonymity, told NAN on Thursday in Abuja that commencement of flight operations would be determined by the management of the airline.

The official disclosed that the company’s workers nationwide had resumed duty, following a directive from the head office of the airline in Lagos.

The Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah, told newsmen that the suspension was lifted because government was satisfied with the safety measures put in place by the airline.

“After the unfortunate and tragic crash of June 3, the suspension of DANA Airline was yesterday lifted by the Federal Government. Our action is informed by our satisfaction, after carrying out a technical audit of the operator that the airline is airworthy.

“While we continue to share in the pain and loss of the families of those who lost their loved ones in the crash, we want to stress that we took this decision with all sense of responsibility,’’ she said.

Oduah noted that government was not under pressure to restore the airline’s operating licence, saying “we want to assure Nigerians and the travelling public that safety remains our priority”.
