The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has suspended Dana Airlines’ Air Transport Licence (ATL) and Air Operator Certificate (AOC) indefinitely, with effect from midnight of Wednesday, July 20, 2022.

The Director General of NCAA, Capt. Musa Nuhu, in a statement said that the suspension was made pursuant to Section 35(2), 3(b) and (4) of the Civil Aviation Act, 2006 and Part of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs), 2015.

He said suspension order has since been communicated to the management of Dana Airlines.


According to statement, the decision is the outcome of a financial and economic health audit carried out on the Airline by the Authority, and the findings of an investigation conducted on the Airline’s flight operations recently.


It said that these revealed that Dana Airlines was no longer in a position to meet its financial obligations and to conduct safe flight operations.


“The NCAA acknowledges the negative effect this preemptive decision will have on the Airline’s passengers and the travelling public and seeks their understanding, as the safety of flight operations takes priority over all other considerations,” he stated.


Recall that Dana Air Boeing 737 aircraft with registration number (5N DNA) had on Tuesday  made an emergency landing at Abuja Airport.


The airline, after the incident, said that the aircraft had been grounded for immediate  attention by engineers.

The airline’s Communication Manager, Mr Kingsley Ezenwa said that the incident was due to an indication on one of its engines.


He noted that the Pilot-in-command briefed the passengers on the incident and landed the aircraft safely at the Abuja International airport at about 2.52 p.m
