Dana Air - Message from AAT staff

On Saturday 02nd June 2012, a Dana Air Boeing MD83 suffered an accident on approach into Lagos Airport, resulting in a total hull loss and in which over 150 people lost their lives.

As would be expected, the investigations are at an early stage and Dana Air are keeping the media and those affected informed in a factual and timely manner. Much media speculation surrounds the events that unfolded on that fateful Saturday to which ASCG CEO Donahue Cortes has stated "A lot of unfounded and unnecessary speculation has saturated media channels. Although it is understandable that everyone is expecting answers investigations of this nature have to be done meticulously and in a thorough manner - and this will take time. Dana Air have demonstrated a total commitment to doing whatever is necessary to support the authorities and those involved during what is always a chaotic and difficult stage in a crisis and emergency management plan. With an impeccable record for reliability and quality service Dana has, in only a few years, gained a prime reputation in the Nigerian aviation industry". Furthermore Donahue stated "The media and those who are impatiently coming to their own conclusions need to accept that it is time to allow the experts to do their jobs and to show respect to the staff at Dana Air, to the Aviation Authorities in Nigeria, and most importantly to the families and friends of those that have sadly passed away".
