Direct Kano - Lagos Flights

Dana Airlines announced that it has concluded plans to commence direct flights from Lagos to Kano with return flights via Abuja in few weeks.

The CEO of Dana Air Mr. Jacky Hathiramani said: "Starting August 17, 2009, business and leisure travelers to the city of Kano will be able to experience the Dana Air hospitality as we extend our operations to the city of commerce. We will offer direct flights from Lagos to Kano and connect the city of Kano to Abuja on the return leg. Also, in a few days, we will take delivery of another Boeing MD83 aircraft to boost operations across all routes."

Only recently, Dana Air introduced a sixth flight from Lagos to Abuja and added a second flight on the Enugu-Lagos flights.

"With the addition of another Boeing MD83 aircraft to our fleet, we will be able to further increase our flight frequency on all our routes, to meet the growing demand of our customers. We are also looking at extending our flights to Port-Harcourt sooner than later", hinted Mr. Hathiramani.

On maintenance of aircrafts in its fleet, Hathiramani said: "Dana Air has a technical partnership with Iberia and we adhere strictly to the maintenance schedule for our aircraft as prescribed by the manufacturers and the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority. More detailed and scheduled checks are, however, carried out at the Iberia aircraft maintenance facility in Madrid, Spain."
