Dana Airlines Suspend Operations

Dana Airlines has acknowledged that its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and Air Transport Licence (ATL) has been suspended indefinitely. Despite this, the commercial airline claims it would emerge from the suspension stronger.

Dana Airlines announced its suspension on Wednesday. The suspension, according to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), would begin at midnight on July 20, 2022, for an operational audit.

The airline operator asserts that operational audits are regulated and that when the NCAA requests it, airlines are required to halt operations.

The commercial airline, in its communique, said it “understands the impact this suspension will have on our partners, staff, passengers and the general public, but we are very confident that we would come out stronger as we have done in the past”.

Dana also reaffirmed to the NCAA its readiness and commitment to working with the aviation authority during the audit.

The airline also promised its clients and partners their reliability, effectiveness, and safety.

“The recent skyrocketing cost of Jet A1 at 830/litre, unavailability of forex, and inflation are also contributory factors to this decision regrettably.

“We crave the understanding and patience of our customers, travel and business partners and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience our short absence from the market might cause,” Dana Airlines entreated.

According to the air service provider, its offices will remain open to all current partners, and its customer support team will continue to work around the clock to provide assistance to affected consumers with the essential information on reimbursements.
