Dana Air restarts local flights

14 February 2014, 09:40Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Dana Air will next Tuesday recommence two daily flights between Lagos and Port Harcourt.

The re-launch of its flight services comes on the back of the heels of the recent addition of a Boeing 737-500 series aircraft as well as the successful outcome of an operational audit conducted on its entire operations by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority Flight Safety Group (FSG), in partnership with their foreign partners.

Announcing the planned recommencement of flights between Lagos and Port Harcourt, Dana Air’s Head of Commercial, Obi Mbanuzuo, said the airline was responding to passengers’demands as well as its primary objective of re-integrating major cities into its route network to offer convenience to the travelling public.

He also added that tickets were now available for sale at fares starting from N12 600 at www.flydanaair.com and at designated sales points nationwide.

“Our schedule has been developed to enhance both business and leisure trips as guests now have the option of catching an early flight between Lagos and Port Harcourt with ease of onward connectivity to Abuja or beyond to keep appointments and return same day using our service. Dana Air will offer choice as it operates two daily flights between both cities using the Boeing McDonnell 83 and Boeing 737-500 aircraft series to service the route,” he said.

He noted that Dana Air’s route network expansion plan is predicated on service standards which the airline had clearly maintained since inception as the goal of the airline is to enhance the service options available to the travelling public throughout Nigeria.
