Federal Government lifts Dana Airline’s suspension

The federal government has lifted the suspension of the Operating Licence of Dana Airlines.

A statement by the Special Assistant on media to the Minister of Aviation said on Wednesday that the lifting of the suspension follows government’s satisfaction with the air-worthiness of the airline after a rigorous technical, operational and financial audit of the airline.

With this development, the statement added, Dana Airline is free to resume its normal commercial flight operations but said that government will however continue to strengthen its oversight and regulatory functions to ensure that all airlines operating in the country, including Dana adhere strictly to safety procedures as required by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Act and all other relevant local and international regulations that ensure and promote sustainable air safety.

The operating licence of Dana Airlines was temporarily suspended following the crash of one of its aircraft on June 3, in Lagos which claimed the lives of 153 passengers on board.

    Aaaaa we have such an irresponsible government. What was the cause of the plane crash and what measures or steps has Dana Airlines put in place to prevent such from happening again?

    I congratulate Dana Air management and staff for this good news, for their resilience and professionalism since that catastrophic day. I also extend my sincere gratitude to the Federal Government through the minister of aviation, Princess Stella Oduah, for this brave and exemplary decision. This is a new dawn in aviation industry, a new beginning that does not allow the virulent criticisms of the pseudo aviation specialists and fake experts who spared no time to start demonizing the management of Dana that, hitherto, ran the best airline with almost perfect on-time performance in the country. Accidents do happen, no one or airline deliberately plans an accident. Space shuttle crashed, the US government did not scrap the programme , Air France crashed, it’s still flying, Turkish Airlines is still flying after the dumb accident in Amsterdam. What we need in Nigeria is to listen, ask questions to improve knowledge instead of running our mouths in an industry we have no clue of. Allow the professionals to handle it. Today, is a good day in Nigeria aviation industry. May the souls of the departed rest in peace and we pray that the living will learn from this accident to avoid re-occurrence. We must move on. I will fly Dana any day.

     Yes was that after a rigorous technical, operational and financial audit of bribery and corruption? The world is watching

    Nigerians are free to choose what airline to fly. It is
    ok for the Government to lift the ban on dana. Before the crash Dana airlines
    use to be my favourite, but now, i do not think i can fly on Dana even if the
    fare is free. So dana has got so much work to do to convince there customers. More
    important now is for the Civil Aviation Authority and other regulatory agencies
    to ensure that airlines operating in Nigeria follow strick safety procedures
    based on global best practice.
