DANA Airline re-launches flight operations to Port Harcourt

17 April 2013, 09:37

Ikeja - The Management of DANA Airline said on Tuesday that it would resume flight operations to Port-Harcourt, Rivers, on Monday, April 22.

This was contained in a statement by its Media Relationship Officer, Mr Samuel Ogbogoro, made available to aviation correspondents.

"DANA Air is scheduled to operate daily flights from both destinations to Port Harcourt on the resumption of the service," Ogbogoro said.

He explained that the re-launch would enable business and leisure travellers the opportunity to experience the airline’s world-class services.

"We are constantly reviewing our operations and our decision to commence operations to Port-Harcourt is hinged on our desire to offer our guests access to seamless connections to their final destinations across the nation."

The Media Officer said that the operations would entail one daily flight from Lagos to Port Harcourt at 11:43hrs and a return flight at 13:50hrs.

"Slight change in schedule will be effected only at the weekend.

"DANA Air will also offer daily flights from Port-Harcourt to Abuja at 08:00hrs, with a return leg to Port-Harcourt at 18:00hrs."

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that DANA Air services were grounded following the crash of its MD 83 aircraft coming to Lagos from Abuja in which 147 people were killed on June 3, 2012.

It, however, resumed flight operations in January, after fulfilling all the requirements put in place by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

Ogbogoro reaffirmed the commitment of the airline to boost its operations by acquiring more Boeing 737 aircraft by the third quarter of this year.
