  • Gifts free tickets onboard


Despite the projected 10 years lifespan for many Nigerian airlines, quite a number of airlines in Nigeria have surpassed that threshold just as Dana Air has overcome the hoodoo that had put many of the country’s airlines down before they clock ten years.

The landscape is dotted with many airlines that have bitten the dust before they clock ten years.

Dana Air has continued to serve for 14 years and the reason the carrier is celebrating 14 years of existence despite many challenges it had gone through and which it overcame.

As part of marking its 14 years of existence, the carrier announced that it would be gifting free tickets onboard its flights for 30 days from November 10th, 2022.
