WorldStage Newsonline-- Dana Air has commended the Federal Government of Nigeria over the lifting of the suspension of the airline's operations with effect from Wednesday, September 5, 2012, following government's satisfaction with the air-worthiness of the airline after a rigorous technical, operational and financial audit.
According to a statement by the airline, “We also wish to thank all Nigerians and our esteemed guests for your prayers since the tragic accident of Sunday, June 3, 2012. Our thoughts and prayers will always be with the families that lost loved ones; we remain committed to assisting them in every way possible and also fulfilling our obligations to them fully, as stipulated by the law.
“The provision of safe, reliable world-class air transport services has always been our focus at Dana Air and we will continue to adhere strictly to safety procedures as required by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Act and all other relevant local and international regulations, as we resume flight operations shortly.
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.
However, the Federal Government on Wednesday lifted the suspension, saying it follows government’s satisfaction with the air-worthiness of the airline after a rigorous technical, operational and financial audit of the airline.
