Dana Air will resume flights tomorrow. The airline held talks with the NCAA and officials of the Ministry of Aviation today, and all issues have been resolved. Dana Air released the following statement:
We are pleased to announce that the airline has been given approval to resume flight operations with immediate effect following the temporary suspension of our operations on Saturday, 16th March, 2013. Scheduled flights will now commence on Tuesday 19th March, 2013 on the Lagos-Abuja-Lagos route.
