Nigerian carrier, Dana Air, has projected a growth in its passengers statistics to 7.2m by the first quarter of 2020 from over 5.4m flown in its 11 years of operation. The airline disclosed this when it bagged an award as the Most Stable Airline in Nigeria at the 2019 Air Transport Industry Awards held in Lagos.
The Editor-in-Chief of Air Transport Quarterly Magazine, Prince Supo Atobatele, said Dana Air bagged the award as a result of its “consistency and stable operations” offering safe and reliable air transport in the past few years.
Reacting to the airline’s award as the most stable domestic carrier, the Media and Communications Manager of the airline, Kingsley Ezenwa, said ‘’the reward for hard work is more work.”
“We have been here for the past 11 years doing what we know how to do best passionately and persistently. With a fleet size which we have progressively grown to nine aircraft, our target is to hit about 7.2m flown passengers by the first quarter of 2020. “We are orderly and we like to take one step at a time. We are presently consolidating while sticking to our strategic fleet and route expansion plan.’’
Kingsley dedicated the award to the airline’s customers for their loyalty and support for the past 11 years and reassured them of the airline’s commitment to continue providing safe, comfortable, on time and reliable air transport.
