The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has suspended Dana Airlines with immediate effect.
Captain Musa Nuhu, NCAA’s Director-General (DG) disclosed the indefinite suspension in a statement on Wednesday night, obtained by POLITICS NIGERIA.
The NCAA helmsman explained that the findings of an investigation conducted on Dana Airline’s flight operations revealed that the carrier was no longer in a position to meet its financial obligations and conduct safe flight operations.
“The NCAA acknowledges the negative effect this pre-emptive decision will have on the airline’s passengers and the travelling public and seeks their understanding, as the safety of flight operations takes priority over all other considerations,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, Dana Airlines in a statement Wednesday confirmed the suspension.
“Our operations have been suspended as advised by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) in order to undergo a full operational audit with effect from midnight 20th July, 2022,” the statement said.
