Dana Air completes maintenance of 2 aircraft

One of Nigeria’s leading domestic airlines, Dana Air, on Friday took possession of its first-ever fully-owned B737-300 aircraft.

Dana Air said it has received two of its Boeing aircraft fresh from maintenance overseas to add to its fleet.

It had returned one aircraft to service in December 2020 and is adding another two. The Chief Operating Officer of Dana Air, Obi Mbanuzuo also apologised to passengers over recent disruptions to its flight.

Daily Trust reports that two of the airline’s aircraft were grounded recently following a snag, which affected its schedules.

With this addition, the airline assured its passengers of improved on-time performance, which it is known for.

“The safety of our guests and crew will continue to take priority in our operations and we will continue to keep our safety standards with zero tolerance for violations irrespective of the situation or circumstance,” Mbanuzuo said.

“The return of another of our aircraft in late December, helped mitigate the schedule disruptions we experienced recently and we have been able to ferry a good number of our guests to their destinations while working to ensure all-round customer satisfaction and schedule reliability for our guests.

“We once again acknowledge the frustrations of our guests and wish to use this medium to once again apologise to them for the schedule disruptions experienced some weeks back. We are deeply sorry about it and we are working tirelessly to improve on our known schedule integrity and overall operational efficiency.’’
