Premium Times – The Federal Government has lifted the suspension of the Operating Licence of Dana Airlines.

“This follows government’s satisfaction with the air-worthiness of the airline after a rigorous technical, operational and financial audit of the airline,” Stellah Oduah, the Aviation minister said on Wednesday.

“By this development, Dana Airline is free to resume its normal commercial flight operations,” the minister added.
