Dana Air said it has recruited and trained more Nigerian pilots in Johannesburg, South Africa and Madrid, Spain as part of contributions to the growth and development of aviation industry in Nigeria.

The airline has also introduced a special Services unit which consists of well-trained males and females to among other functions, attend to passengers with special needs, urgent complaints, update passengers on current promos and benefits of Dana Miles at Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Uyo and Owerri airports

According to the Accountable Manager of Dana Air, Mr. Obi Mbanuzuo, ‘Dana Air is committed to the growth and development of the Nigerian aviation industry. As at 2015, more than 500 Nigerian pilots were unemployed but with our recruitment and frequent training both locally and abroad since 2015, we have been able to reduce the number, by engaging these pilots and paying for their training in South Africa and Spain.”

“We will continue to encourage professionalism in the industry and support our Nigerian Pilots to ensure constant growth and development in the industry.’’
