Dana Air Opens Lagos-Uyo And Abuja-Uyo Routes
Dana Air has announced that it will commence scheduled operations to Akwa Ibom Airport, Uyo, as from Monday, January 18, 2010. The airline will offer services from Uyo to Lagos and Abuja:
- Lagos-Uyo: 9J1999 – 10:35-11:50
- Uyo-Lagos: 9J1998 – 15:30-16:50
- Uyo-Abuja: 9J341 – 12:15-13:25
- Abuja-Uyo: 9J340 – 13:50-15:05
Dana Air suspended its flights to Enugu and reduced the frequency from its daily flights between Lagos and Abuja from six to five, in order to open this new route. The airline has only four MD-83s (ex-Alaska Airlines).
It seems that Arik Air will not return to Akwa Ibom Airport soon, after a row about payments to be made by the state governent.
