Following the lifting of the suspension on Dana Air’s operating licence by the Federal Government, the airline has begun a process of recertification by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
The airline’s Head of Corporate Communications, Tony Usidamen, who made the disclosure, said that it was standard industry practice for an airline to undergo recertification after its operations have been grounded for several weeks.
“This is a standard safety measure taken by the authorities to ensure that all the aircraft in the fleet are fully serviceable, and we are cooperating fully in the exercise.”
“Of the five aircraft in the airline’s fleet, three are currently at MMA2 while two are undergoing the statutory ‘C-Checks’ at the MyTechnic engineering base in Istanbul, Turkey,” Usidamen said.
In readiness for operations too, all staff of the airline will commence re-training shortly. This, according to Usidamen, is to ensure quality at every level of the airline’s operations.
