Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Lagos

Dana Air has com­menced daily flights from Lagos to Ow­erri with an in­tro­duc­tory on­line fare of N12, 600 for one way.

The de­vel­op­ment added to the routes of the air­line which in­cluded Abuja, Lagos, Abuja, Port Har­court and Uyo with a plan to ex­pand its op­er­a­tions to other cities in Nige­ria as part of its strate­gic route ex­pan­sion plans.

The Ac­count­able Man­ager of Dana Air, Mr Obi Mbanuzuo, speak­ing in Lagos, said that the air­line was com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing safe, re­li­able and pocket-friendly ser­vice to the fly­ing pub­lic.

He said: “We com­menced daily flights from Lagos to Ow­erri and back with an on­line fare we feel will be suit­able for all. The fare is just our way of thank­ing our loyal guests on Lagos, Abuja, Port Har­court and Uyo routes for vis­it­ing our web­site to book their tick­ets.”

Ex­plain­ing the choice of Ow­erri, Obi said: “Ow­erri is fast be­com­ing a hub in Nige­ria and our de­ci­sion was borne out of our de­sire to ex­tend our award win­ning ser­vice to the good peo­ple of Ow­erri, the Imo State cap­i­tal.

“Plans are in top gear to add to our fleet and we are in talks with our lo­cal and for­eign part­ners to see ways to fast track this. We are also aware of the de­mand for ex­ten­sion of our world-class ser­vices to more Nige­rian cities and the west coast, and wish to state that plans are un­der­way to ex­pand our route net­work in the com­ing month in line with our growth plan,’’he said.
