Dana targets 7.2 million passengers in Q1
Adomestic carrier, Dana Air, says it plans to increase the number of its total passengers airlifted since it began operations to 7.2 million by the end of the first quarter of this year.
The airline had last year said it airlifted 5.4 million passengers in the last 11 years of its operations and hoped to double the figure by sustaining operational efficiency and increasing fleet size, among other initiatives in the coming years.
“With a fleet size which we have progressively grown to nine aircraft, our target is to hit about 7.2 million flown passengers by the first quarter of 2020,” the Media and Communications Manager, Kingsley Ezenwa, said.
“We are orderly and we like to take one step at a time. We are presently consolidating while sticking to our strategic fleet and route expansion plan,” he added.
Ezenwa said the airline recently got an award as the most stable airline in Nigeria at the 2019 Air Transport Industry Awards in Lagos.
he quoted the Editorin-chief of Air Transport Quarterly Magazine, Supo Atobatele, as saying the award was in honour of some of the industry’s finest individuals and corporate bodies with penchant for hard work, innovation and capacity building.
Ezenwa said the reward for hard work would be more work for the airline.
