Dana Air passengers have commended the integrity and professionalism demonstrated by the airline’s security team on discovery of valuable items forgotten on-board its aircraft
The airline in a statement issued by its Media and Communications Manager, Kingsley Ezenwa said, “We are not surprised by the recent commendations that our security team has been getting on their constant display of integrity and professionalism on and off the job.
“There have been many cases of lost and recovered items like phones, Ipads, huge sums of money, Nigerian passports with valid visas and lots of valuable items.
“We have also returned a lot of missing foreign and Nigerian passports to the immigration, embassies and even sometimes call the owners in the cases where we are able to track the passenger’s booking with authentic details. This is also one of the reasons we advise passengers to enter their correct details when booking.’’
Ezenwa, narrated that recently, a passenger on one of our flight from Abuja to Lagos left a bag containing $5,000 and some other valuables.
“On getting to Victoria Island, he noticed he wasn’t with the bag and dashed back to the airport, met the security team who confirmed the item was found. He proved ownership of the item; completed necessarily documents and got his missing item back immediately.
“He thanked the security team for displaying a high level of integrity and professionalism in handling an issue that involved hard currency. He also appreciated the staff for proving all the negative things they hear about Nigerians wrong,” he disclosed.
