Dana Air Resumes Lagos to Abuja Flight at N11,799

Dana Air; banned from flying after one of its flights crashed and killed 153 people last year, resumed flights on Friday, selling its online ticket for the Lagos-Abuja flight at almost half the price of other airlines.

The renewed flight; Dana Air Flight 9J353 left the Murtala Muhammed Airport II in Lagos, a few minutes after 10am and landed in Abuja at 11.05am with celebrities, journalists amongst its passengers.

The passengers gave a loud cheer and applause as the flight landed Abuja safely on Friday.

Tickets for the resumed flights were sold at half the price of normal flights charged by other airlines.

A one-way ticket to Abuja from Lagos was sold at N11,799 when other airlines charge about N25,000.

The resumption of the flight comes amidst criticisms and the call by the House of Representatives for a revocation of the airline’s licence, a few months after aviation authorities restored the licence.

Meanwhile the spokesperson of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Mr Sam Adurogboye, has stated that the airline is now fit to fly following a rigorous five step re-certification process.

Dana Air’s McDonnell Douglas MD-83 crashed into an apartment block in a densely populated suburb of Iju Ishaga in Lagos on June 3, killing everyone on board and 10 people on the ground.

The airline which was banned from flying after the crash resumed operations with its five remaining MD-83s, starting with a flight from Lagos to Abuja on Friday.

The Federal Government lifted the ban on the airline in September while investigation was on-going on the crash.

      The problem is with the ”gullible” Nigerians; they blame Government and blame themselves for bringing harm their way. In advanced countries like Japan, the US and Europe, Dana Air and its allies will cease to function. The people don’t need government’s certification to boycott or totally avoid transacting business with the company, even if their air ticket is 2 kobo! Our people are so ”cheap”…. so cheap that they don’t care to know what happened in the past. We tend to risk our LIVES unnecessarily…. Yet we blame government and blame Dana Air when another CRASH occurs! 

      Nigerians CAN avoid another TRAGEDY from taking place by avoiding flying with DANA Air… We are NOT so poor that OUR lives should be this CHEAP! In developed countries, this company don’t need to be reminded that they can’t operate again. May the souls of the departed continue to REST in PEACE.

    I hope all Is are dotted and the ts are crossed. The authorities concerned should not trade away the dear lives of innocent Nigerians. By the way, what has happened to the disbursement of the compensation to the families that lost their loved ones in the ill-fated Dana crash of June 3rd, 2012 ?
