Dana Air has been announced as the official airline of the National Security Summit scheduled to hold in Abuja
Themed: “Forging partnerships for effective strategies to curb the menace of kidnapping, recurring farmers-pastoralists clashes and criminality in Nigeria’, the summit which is expected to be declared open by President Muhammadu Buhari, is organized by the office of the inspector general of police in conjunction with Leadership Group, and National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria.
The summit is aimed at creating relevant platform for all stakeholders to meet and deliberate on appropriate, implementable and enduring solutions to security threats in the country
Commenting on the partnership, the accountable manager of Dana Air, Mr. Obi Mbanuzuo said: “We are proud to have been announced as the official airline for this all-important summit. As an airline committed to the safety of our guests and Nigerians at large, we feel there is no better time than now.
“For us to come together and seek ways to solve these security challenges we believe the inspector general of police and our royal fathers have taken the right step. We will as always offer delegates to this summit the best of on-time performance and in-flight service.’’
He said the choice of Dana Air was well-thought out and the fact that the airline has proven to be a responsible corporate citizen with the 50 per cent discount that the airline is offering ministries, departments and agencies travelling on official duty.
Mbanuzuo further said as the official airline, Dana would be expected to offer seamless services to delegates attending the summit from Lagos, Akwa Ibom, Port Harcourt, Kaduna, and Owerri.
Also speaking, the consultant to the inspector general of police, Mr. Henry Daniel-Elebiga said: “We decided to partner an airline that has a track-record of good customer service, in-flight service and on-time performance. This is an airline that has raised the bar on all fronts and is also a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) registry, which is a confirmation of the airline’s adherence to global operational safety standards.’’
