Dana Air in urgent talks with Nigeria CAA to lift suden ban
Senior management from Nigeria's Dana Air are currently meeting the country's civil aviation authority following a ban on the airline's operations.
The carrier was grounded by the Nigerian aviation ministry over the weekend, less than three months after resuming flights following the fatal crash of one of its Boeing MD-83s in Lagos last June.
Corporate communication chief Tony Usidamen told reporters that “no specific reason was given for the action. We will update you as we get more information".
However, the Minister of Aviation's spokesman, Mr. Joe Obi, said Dana's license suspension was based on safety and precautionary issues.
He said one of Dana's aircraft had a technical issue last week and said that even though it's not a serious issue, the ministry does not want to take chances.
