Dana Air sacks workers weeks after license suspension

Dana Air has laid off several of its workers weeks after suspension by the Nigerian government.

In a statement on Saturday, the Head of Corporate Communications for the airline, Kingsley Ezen, blamed the development on the ongoing audit by the Nigerian regulatory authorities.

“In light of the ongoing audit, Dana Air has decided to temporarily disengage some staff members pending the conclusion of the audit,” Ezenwa said.

“The Management of Dana Air extends its sincere appreciation to all staff members for their resilience and dedication during this period of uncertainty. It recognises the difficulties that staff have had to endure and assures them that every effort is being made to resolve the situation promptly,” it added.

Recall that on April 24, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority suspended the Air Operators Certificate of Dana Air 24 hours after the airline’s plane from Abuja landed at the Lagos airport runway and veered off into a nearby field.

Reacting to the development, the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, said the airline has been operating in an unhealthy status.
