The Federal Government this evening lifted the suspension of the Operating Licence of Dana Airlines.
According to a statement from the Minister of Aviation’s office, this action is as a result of government’s satisfaction with the air-worthiness of the airline after a rigorous technical, operational and financial audit of the airline.
As a result of this, Dana Airline can resume commercial flight operations in Nigeria.
The statement however added that the government would continue to strengthen its oversight and regulatory functions and ensure that all airlines operating in the country, including Dana, would 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.
