Daily Trust - - AVIATION - From Chris Agabi

Dana Air has been named the “Do­mes­tic Air­line Op­er­a­tor of the Year 2013” by the Trans­port & Lo­gis­tics Nigeria Limited, or­ga­niz­ers of the Trans­port Stake­hold­ers’ Ex­cel­lence Awards.

Dana Air­line emerged af­ter a thor­ough rig­or­ous screen­ing by a team of as­ses­sors and the re­sult was sub­se­quently con­firmed by a pub­lic opin­ion sur­vey.

A state­ment from the air­line said the trans­port and lo­gis­tics award is an ini­tia­tive de­signed to re­ward, cel­e­brate, en­cour­age, and project trans­port stake­hold­ers who have con­trib­uted sig­nif­i­cantly to­wards the ad­vance­ment and de­vel­op­ment of lo­gis­tics and trans­port in all ram­i­fi­ca­tions.

The air was pre­sented with the cov­eted plaque at the Awards cer­e­mony which held at the La­gos Sher­a­ton Ho­tels & Tow­ers and was at­tended by nu­mer­ous high pro­file guests in­clud­ing Hon­or­able Kay­ode Opeifa, the La­gos state com­mis­sioner for trans­port as spe­cial guest of honor as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Osun State Gover­nor and the per­ma­nent sec­re­tary federal min­istry of trans­port.

Com­ment­ing on the award, the Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer of Dana Air, Mr. Yvan Drewin­sky said: “It’s grat­i­fy­ing that the air­line has con­tin­ued to at­tract pos­i­tive at­ten­tion and has again been voted as the air­line of the year by stake­hold­ers in the trans­port and lo­gis­tics sec­tor. More im­por­tantly, Dana Air takes this award as a vote of con­fi­dence from our dis­cern­ing cus­tomers and we want to re-as­sure them that we will in­ten­sify our ef­forts at build­ing a world class air­line in Nigeria,” he said.
