Dana Air at the weekend celebrated its 14th anniversary by giving free tickets onboard its flights for 30 days since last week, the airline said in a statement.
It commenced scheduled flight operations on the 10th of November 2008 and has steadily grown its fleet to about nine aircraft with over nine million passengers flown in the last 14 years.
The Chief Operating Officer of Dana Air, Ememobong Ettete, lauded the airline’s ravel partners, loyal customers, vendors, and most importantly the staff “for keeping faith with us and believing in the brand – Dana Air, without them, there is no us.’’
‘’We are resilient, dogged and passionate about what we know how to do best, which is flying safely, and this is just to reassure the flying public that we are back, better and improved.’’
“There is no better way to celebrate the last 14 years than to appreciate all those who have stood by us both in our smooth and challenging times and we shall be giving out free tickets onboard our flights for the next 30 days.
“We remain eternally grateful to our staff for being loyal, professional and very understanding in the course of our recent audit. The successful completion of the audit is a huge blessing to the flying public as the generic fares are relatively low and stable now and we will offer superior options, competitive fares, more capacity from now till the yuletide and beyond.”
Meanwhile, the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE) in a letter signed by its Deputy General Secretary Umoh Ofonime congratulated the airline on the success at the recently concluded NCAA audit.
“We are sure the exercise has prepared your airline for smooth and safe operations,” NAAPE said.
