Dana Air, on Sunday, said it had taken delivery of two of its Boeing aircraft, fresh from maintenance overseas, Mr Obi Mbanuzuo, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the airline, stated in a statement in Lagos.
According to Mbanuzuo, the arrival of the two aircraft was coming days after another of its aircraft returned to service in December.
“Just recently we received one of our aircraft back from maintenance, while the other is undergoing mandatory checks by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) before release.
”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.
”The return of another of our aircraft in late December, helped mitigate the schedule disruptions we experienced recently.
”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,” he added.
The Dana boss observed that the airline was one of Nigeria’s leading airlines, with a mixed fleet of nine aircraft and daily flights from Lagos to Abuja, Port Harcourt, Owerri and Enugu.
