Dana Air’s operating licence suspended

The Federal Government of Nigeria has suspended Dana Air’s operating licence due to its shoddy handling of the compensation claims to victims of the airline’s crash in June last year.
Special Assistant, Media to the Minister of Aviation, Joe Obi, said that the airline “has been asked to suspend operations”. And that “The action was intended to enable proper sorting out of all the issues surrounding the June 3rd crash, including the compensation to the victims’ families.”
In line with the directive, the airline cancelled its flights by Sunday.

Dana Air, in a statement signed by its Head of Communication, Tony Usidamen said, “We regret to announce the temporary suspension of our flight operations following a directive from the Ministry of Aviation through the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on Saturday, 16th March, 2013. No specific reason was given for the action.
“A meeting is, however, scheduled between the management of Dana Air, the Ministry of Aviation and the NCAA on Monday 18th March and we will update you as we get more information.
“We thank you for your patience and understanding, and we look forward to having the pleasure of welcoming you on board again shortly.”
