Dana Air suspended again

Dana Air said in the statement it did not know the reason for the suspension by NCAA.

In June, Dana Air flight 992, a McDonnell Douglas MD-83, crashed into an apartment block in a populated Lagos suburb, killing 153 people on board and 10 others on the ground.

Dana was suspended, but was allowed to start flights again in September, despite an inquiry into the cause of the crash not yet being complete.

President Goodluck Jonathan sacked the head of the aviation authority last week.
