Following the lifting of the
suspension placed on Dana Air by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for a technical audit, the airline has resumed full flight operations at the Port Harcourt airport.
On resumption after the suspension that kept the airline away from the air for months, Dana Air began flight operations from Lagos to Abuja January but postponed Port Harcourt route till Tuesday when the first flight touched ground at 8.00am.
On board the new Boeing 737-500 series aircraft acquired by the airline to boost its fleet was the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Dana Air Mr Yuan Drewinsky and other management staff of the airline with other commercial passengers.
Mr Drewinsky told aviation correspondents at the Port Harcourt International Airport, that the airline had resumed operations after the suspension issue that slowed down their activities, noting that a lot of efforts had been put in place to ensure that their customers get the best of services.
According to him, “we have put the incident of the suspension behind us, we are back the way we use to be, all time service performance, proactive as we listen to what the customers want and we have acquired new aircraft to improve our service delivery”.
He explained that the Port Harcourt flight operation was earlier scheduled to commence in the month but was postponed, stressing that the resumption was long over due but thanked God that the business took off.
The Chief Executive office of Dana Air lauded customers of the airline for their patience, encouragement and support during the trying moments of the suspension and assured them of great improvement in the airline’s services including booking online.
Some of the passengers who spoke to The Tide correspondent, expressed happiness  that the airline is back to business to render services to the teeming customers of air travellers.
Mr. Zak Timon, Sampson Lawal and Mr Itodo, said the introduction of a new aircraft to their fleet would help to check the high fares charged by Arik Air and Aero Contractor and commended the services.
They however, prayed that the incident which resulted in the suspension would never occur again, adding that enough lessons have been learnt by the measures and warned other airlines to take corrective steps to avert the ugly incidents of the past.
