Dana Air flights were disrupted on Monday as a result of the ongoing renewal process for the airline’s certification by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority.
Some passengers of the airline heading to Abuja from Lagos on Monday, who were originally meant to fly to their destination on a Dana flight, could not do so, but were rather airlifted by a MaxAir aircraft.
Narrating what transpired at the airport in Lagos to our correspondent, one of the passengers who simply gave his name as Austin, said, “We were supposed to travel with flight 9J355 for 11:15am to Abuja from Lagos.
When contacted to know if the NCAA was aware of the development, a spokesperson of the authority, Jimoh Mohammed, said Dana was concluding the renewal process of its certification and so could not fly until the exercise was completed.
