Dana Air Thursday said it has resolved operational hitches that resulted to its early morning long flight delays.
Hundreds of airline passengers were stranded as the early morning flight schedules were not operated. There was no immediate explanations by the airline as to the cause of the delays which led to speculations that the airline pilots were on strike.
The airline however, later resumed normal flight operations in the afternoon. A statement later by Mr Kingsley Ezenwa, Media Manager, Dana Air, explained that the airline experienced ”operational problems“ and aplogised to its customers who were affected by the delay.
According to Ezenwa the airline’s pilots were not on strike. He said “ Below is just a word of apology to our guests for the unfortunate operational issues we had this morning. Pleased to inform you that we resumed flights at noon after resolving the issue.”
“Dana Air wishes to apologize to all passengers on its delayed early morning flights to Abuja, and Port Harcourt on 26 May 2016.”
“The delay which was due to operational reasons have been resolved and scheduled flights have commenced. Dana Air places a high premium on safety and we would always strive to deliver high quality air transport services to our esteemed guests”
