The management of Dana Air on Wednesday said the carrier would recommence its flight operations very soon, the spokesman of the airline following the restoration of its operating licence by the Federal Government.

Dana’s spokesman, Mr. Tony Usidamen, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the airline had commenced its certification with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority following the lifting of its suspension by the Federal Government on September 5.

He said the airline would commence flight operations once NCAA was through with the certification process, adding that the airline would also test run its aircraft in accordance with the NCAA guidelines.

He told NAN that the certification process had begun, adding that the airline would also organise internal training programmes for its workers, especially the cabin crew.

Usidamen said, “We are already doing our certification and conducting refresher trainings for our cabin crew. We are also doing post psychological training for them.

“I cannot say the particular date when we will start flying because it depends on when NCAA will be through with the certification, but I hope it will be in the next couple of weeks. Flight test running is a normal process, which will have to be carried out with the NCAA officials during the certification process, and we are looking forward to it.”
