Dana Air management on Sunday said none of its plane was involved in any crash in Lagos.
Kingsley Ezenwa, spokesman for the airline, said the company was reacting to a report insinuating that a Dana Air plane crashed somewhere in Lagos on Sunday, 11 December, 2016.
“We wish to state unequivocally that the report is entirely false and malicious, as it carries pictures and report of the previous incident.
“At Dana Air, the safety and comfort of our guests and crew is a major priority to us and we will continue to adhere strictly to all local and international regulations in the delivery of safe, reliable and world-class air transport.
“We also regret any inconveniences this may have caused our teeming guests, and we assure them that the issue is being investigated”, he said.
In the same vein, the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), debunked the rumours making the rounds on social media of the crash of an aircraft belonging to a particular airline in Nigeria.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the agency hereby wishes to state categorically that such rumours are baseless, unfounded and therefore NOT TRUE. NAMA can authoritatively inform the Nigerian public that there is no missing aircraft whatsoever within the Nigerian Airspace. The agency therefore uses this opportunity to assure all Nigerians of the safety of the nation’s airspace as all necessary measures are being put in place to ensure seamless, efficient and safe flight operations in Nigeria”.
