Nigerian Government Suspends Operating Licence Of Dana Air
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority has confirmed the suspension of the operating license of Dana Airline, the operator of the MD 83 jetliner that crashed in Lagos on Sunday killing all 153 passengers on board.
The government said it took the decision to allow for a free and unfettered investigation into the circumstances surrounding the fatal crash of flight #992 in Iju area of Lagos.
The suspension of Dana Air's operating licence came few hours after a Nigeria senator moved a motion requesting the authorities to ground Dana's air fleet today in Abuja.
