Dana Decries Delays Caused by Paucity of Aviation Fuel 


By Chinedu Eze

Dana Air has said the delay caused by inadequate supply of aviation fuel is hurting its principal value of on-time performance.

The airline reiterated its commitment to improving on-time performance, which it said, was the core of its excellent services, when it took to the skies on November 10, 2008.

According to the Accountable Manager of the airline, Mr. Obi Mbanuzuo, Dana Air has always taken the lead in ensuring that passengers get to their destinations on schedule, but recent delays due to shortage of fuel supply has not really helped its flight services to the flying public.

“We sincerely apologise to our teeming guests for the delays experienced recently and regret the inconveniences caused. The recent delays have not really helped our desire and commitment to take our passengers to their destinations on schedule.’’

Obi commented further: “The issue is antithetical to our award winning service and we have been proactive in seeking better handling of operational issues. We will not relent in our efforts but continue to strive to improve on our services and offerings.’’

Dana Air recently launched flight services from Lagos to Owerri with an introductory online fare of N12, 600, to further boost business and leisure travel to the Imo state capital.
