Nigeria’s aviation authorities have withdrawn the operational license of the Dana Airlines, the owners of the plane that crashed Sunday in Lagos, killing over 150 people.
“We have suspended their operational licence in the aftermath of the crash.
“We have to look at their entire practice. … They won’t fly again until their re-certification is carried out,” Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority spokesman Sam Adurogboye told AFP, adding that the move was made Monday.
Dana, with a fleet of 5 MD-83 planes began operation in Nigeria in 2008.
Until, the 3 June fatal mishap on flight 992 in Lagos, it was the preferred airline by many travellers in Nigeria.
