Dana prepares to resume scheduled commercial flight operations.
Dana Air on Wednesday began its test flight in preparation for the resumption of passenger flight operations.
The airline’s spokesman, Tony Usidamen, said the test flights would be followed by demonstration flights.
The test flight took off from the domestic wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, at about 4 p.m.
Mr. Usidamen confirmed that after the test flight, demonstration flights would follow, adding that it would finally lead to scheduled commercial flight operations.
According to him, the purpose of the test flight is to determine the serviceability of the aircraft ground equipment.
Dana Air’s license was suspended after one of its airplanes crashed on June 3, killing all 153 passengers and several more on ground.
There is also an ongoing inquest into the cause of the plane crash at a Lagos court. But on September 3, the Federal Government cleared the airline to resume scheduled commercial flight operations after three months suspension. The Federal Government said that after rigorous audits, the airline was found air-worthy.
