► NIGERIA: Dana Air to resume Uyo, Calabar in the next few weeks.

Dana Air logoNigerian domestic carrier, Dana Air (9J), will re-launch flight services to Uyo and Calabar "in the coming weeks", Tony Usidamen, head of corporate communications at the airline, has said. Currently, Dana Air serves Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.

Mr Usidamen said  the decision to re-launch operations to both Uyo and Calabar in Akwa Ibom and Cross River State respectively, came on the back of strong demand for the routes from the region's gas & petroleum multinationals.
Since resuming flight operations to Lagos and Abuja in January, we have had many requests from air travelers across the country to extend our world-class services to more cities. The commencement of Port Harcourt operations was in line with the requests and, in a few weeks, we will commence scheduled flights to Uyo and Calabar too," he said.

With both states playing host to several multinational companies in the oil & gas industry, we are confident that our new services from Uyo and Calabar to Lagos and Abuja will make the states even more attractive to investors,” Mr Usidamen added.
Dana Air currently operates 12 flights daily on the Lagos-Abuja-Lagos route, four (4) flights daily on the Lagos-Port Harcourt-Lagos route and two flights daily on the Abuja-Port Harcourt-Abuja route.
