Dana Air Begins Operations to Calabar, Increases Flight Frequencies

In order to cater for the demands of its esteemed guests this festive season and beyond, Dana Air, has increased flight frequencies on its Lagos-Port Harcourt-Lagos route and is set to commence operations to the city of Calabar this December.

In a statement by the company, Chief Executive Officer of Dana Air, Jacky Hathiramani, said that the airline has introduced an additional flight from Lagos to Port Harcourt at 13:32hrs and from Port Harcourt to Lagos at 15:30hrs. The airline would also commence flights from Lagos to Calabar at 17:28hrs with a return flight from Calabar to Lagos at 19:28hrs on December 18, 2011.

While addressing newsmen in Lagos during its 3rd year anniversary celebrations in November 2011, Hathiramani had promised, “We are 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 first quarter of 2012 in line with our growth plan.”

The commencement of operations to Calabar is in fulfillment of that promise. “Now the good people of Cross River State can enjoy the same world-class services that Dana Air is renowned for on all its other routes. Our goal is to meet, and even exceed, the travel expectations of guests flying in and out of Calabar, either for business or pleasure,” Hathiramani stated.

We thank the Government of Cross River State, under the able leadership of Governor Liyel Imoke, the Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah, the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Harold Demuren, and other aviation regulatory bodies for their efforts towards ensuring a safe operating environment for operators.

Since its inaugural flight from Lagos to Abuja on November 10, 2008, Dana Air has grown to become one of Nigeria’s leading airlines operating up to 27 daily flights to Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Uyo and, now, Calabar.

Recipient of several awards for aviation service excellence, Dana Air is reputed for its efficient customer services, world-class in-flight services, on-time departures and arrivals, innovative e-airline products and high safety and quality standard.
