Domestic carrier, Dana Air has been announced as the newest member of the International Air Transport Association.
The airline said the IATA membership was coming two years after it passed its International Operations Safety Audit and was admitted into the association’s global safety registry.
The Dana Air’s Accountable Manager, Mr. Obi Mbanuzuo, said that becoming a member of IATA was a significant milestone for the airline.
He added, “This only demonstrates our level of professionalism and commitment to operational efficiency in terms of providing our guests with safe, seamless and world-class air transport service in Nigeria.
“Apart from the fact that this membership will further strengthen our relationship with other international airlines, we see it as an opportunity to take our amazing products to the global stage through interline and code-share agreements. Dana Air is the first and only Nigerian airline to have undergone an operational audit conducted by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority and its foreign partners – The Flight Safety Group, and we are determined to reinforce our strategic route network within and beyond Nigeria.’’
He said the airline in furtherance of its customer- centric products recently launched a special services unit for passengers with special needs, urgent complaints, and to update passengers on current promos and benefits of Dana Miles at the airports in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Uyo and Owerri.
