Dana Air Dismiss Workers Weeks After Plane Crash-Landed In Lagos—Amid an ongoing operational review conducted by regulatory bodies, Dana Air has announced adjustments to its workforce.

According to Kingsley Ezen, the Head of Corporate Communications for the airline, Dana Air has decided to part ways with certain employees, as revealed in a statement issued on Saturday.

The airline stressed that the ongoing audit, conducted jointly with regulatory authorities, aims to ensure strict compliance with all necessary standards and regulations.

“In light of the ongoing audit, Dana Air has opted to temporarily suspend certain staff members pending the audit’s conclusion,” stated Ezenwa.

The management of Dana Air expressed gratitude to all employees for their perseverance and commitment during this uncertain period. They acknowledged the challenges faced by staff and assured them of efforts to swiftly resolve the situation.

Dana Air reiterated its commitment to collaborating closely with authorities to facilitate a smooth and timely resolution of the audit process. The airline promised to provide updates and support to its staff throughout this period.

Additionally, Dana Air has initiated discussions with lessors and actively engaged stakeholders in ongoing developments.

The airline appeals for calm and understanding from its dedicated staff and stakeholders, acknowledging their cooperation and support.

In April, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority suspended Dana Air’s Air Operators Certificate, following an incident where one of its planes veered off the runway at Lagos airport. Despite the mishap, all passengers and crew members disembarked safely.

As investigations continue, regulatory bodies deemed it necessary to audit the carrier’s operations while awaiting the outcome of the investigation by the Nigerian Safety and Investigation Bureau.
