Dana resumes flights today

13

By UCHE USIM

At last, embattled domestic operator, Dana Air, will commence its scheduled domestic operations today with a Lagos-Abuja service.

The airline went off the skies on June 3, 2012, when the aviation mmmministry via the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) suspended its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) following the crash of one of its MD 83 jets in Iju Ishaga area of Lagos that killed 163 people and destroyed property worth billions of naira.

Since then, the airline had battled for its return into operation and on December 5, 2012, the NCAA issued new AOC to the airline after it satisfactorily scaled the safety audit.

But the regulatory agency, NCAA, told the airline management in clear terms that it would not be allowed to fly until it begins to pay the outstanding 70 per cent of the $100,000 to families of victims of the crash as stipulated by law.

Having also showed sufficient evidence of this, the NCAA gave the airline the all clear nod to commence scheduled operations.

Reacting to the resumption of flights, the spokesman of Dana Group, Tony Usidamen, extolled the NCAA for its support, adding that the airline would begin with a Lagos-Abuja-Lagos flight today, after which it would gradually introduce other routes it hitherto flew to.

  2. I rather ride on bicycle from PH to Sokoto than taking DANA Air a flying coffin.If they like they should make their flight fares #1.Taking DANA air is as good as suicide,and i know that no sane Nigeria will ever try to take DANA.

  3. God help Nigeria, what is the distance from Lagos to Abuja that a good rail transport system can not solve. A train travelling at 150km/hr will reach Abuja in 4hr assuming the distance is 600km. How much is 4 hr that one can not Sacrifice rather than going on 45minutes Journey and end up in grave. Can you imaging corruption, A dana Airplane that killed 163 people and destroyed property worth billions of naira is still given the License to fly and license to kill. Ponder over this:
    “But the regulatory agency, NCAA, told the airline management in clear terms that it would not be allowed to fly until it begins to pay the outstanding 70 per cent of the $100,000 to families of victims of the crash as stipulated by law. Having also showed sufficient evidence of this, the NCAA gave the airline the all clear nod to commence scheduled operations.” By my elementary calculation, $100,000 / 163 = $613.5. This mean that each life that was lost is worth #95,000, what a Ritual country. Which court of Law decided that type of Compensation to the family?. You can see corruption in every facet of life in Nigeria. Capitalism is the worst System of Government. Dana airline only considered the money that goes to their pocket that is, if you board our plane crash, you are on your own. Fellow Nigerians think twice before you cast LOT on your precious Life.

  9. Oduduwa, each passenger is entitled to $100,000 each x 163 and not $100,000/163. Although no amount of money can bring back human life. Safety and good maintenance is the key successful travel by air. Once again may God console the families of the departed.

    Welcome back DANA, what God has destined to happen must surely come to pass. I therefore, enjoin you to frequently check and carry out repairs and services when necessary. Dana, I wish you safe flight, amen.

    I have fobia for flight, even if it is in Airforce One of the US President. The truth is that any airplane of any airline can crash anytime irrespective of the environment in which it operates. One should always pray that he should not be a victim, directly or indirectly.
