Dana Air has announced it will support the Nigerian Economic Summit (NES#23), scheduled to hold from 10th to 12th October, 2017, at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.
Themed: Opportunities, Productivity, and Employment: Actualizing the Economy Recovery and Growth Plan,’’ the annual Nigerian Economic Summit (NES), which is jointly organised by the Nigerian Economic Summit Group and the Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning, is the largest and most prestigious forum for policy makers and captains of industry from both private and public sectors of the Nigerian economy to interact and share thoughts on Key issues and challenges facing the Nigerian economy.
Commenting on the partnership, the Communications Manager of Dana Air, Mr Kingsley Ezenwa said, for over five years, we have been supporting the Nigerian Economic Summit as a brand that is committed to the economic recovery plan of the Federal Government. We are a proudly Nigerian brand and we are committed to everything that concerns Nigeria and the well-being of our people.’’
Ezenwa added that, ‘ Nigeria is gradually coming out of recession and we commend the enduring efforts of the Federal Government and the Economic Team. What is more important now is how we can maintain the growth trajectory post-recession, to deliver a positive impact on Nigerian citizens in general. This is what this year’s summit intends to achieve and we are proud to be supporting again this year’.
As part of its support to the Nigerian Economic Summit 23, Dana Air will be providing the Nigerian Economic Summit team with complimentary tickets while delegates will enjoy specials fares on the airline.
Only recently, Dana Air showed a massive commitment and support to the Federal Government‘s cost-cutting effort, when the airline partnered and introduced a scheme which will see public officials pay 50% less on tickets. This initiative which has been hugely commended and well-received by MDAs, has been attributed to the airlines’ operational efficiency and commitment to promoting public interest.
Having flown over 2.7 million passengers and named one of Nigeria’s most respected companies, Dana Air is one of Nigeria’s leading airlines with over 27 daily flights from Lagos to Abuja, Port Harcourt, Uyo and Owerri. The airline is reputed for its innovative online products, world-class in-flight service and unrivaled on-time performance.
