NCAA lauds Dana for safety standard
Dana Air has been commended by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority for grounding its planes for proper maintenance checks.
Captain Musa Nuhu, the Director General of the NCAA, confirmed this exclusively to our correspondent in Abuja.
Dana Air, according to Nuhu, grounded all of its aircraft to conduct maintenance checks.
"They noticed that some of their aircraft were due for maintenance and they informed us accordingly. "I believe it is commendable for an operator to ground its aircraft for maintenance," stated the NCAA president.
He also stated that the airline would notify the authority once the maintenance check was completed.
Meanwhile, the airline informed its customers in the early hours of Friday via its official Instagram handle that there will be no flight operations on Saturday, February 25, due to the general elections.
However, the airline stated that operations would resume on Sunday, February 26.
"Please be advised that we will not be operating on Friday, February 24th and 25th, 2023 due to presidential and National Assembly elections," the statement said.
"However, we will resume normal operations on Sunday, February 26th, 2023."
When asked if the airline would resume operations by Sunday, the NCAA president responded, "The agreement is that they will notify us when they are due to resume and I believe they said they are going to send us something today, once they give us and we are okay, then they can resume operations."
Meanwhile, the spokesperson of Dana Air, Kingsley Ezenwa, while reacting, said, "When there is a reduction in capacity, you just have to find a way to protect your passengers and once your capacity increases, you can schedule your flights.
