Dana Air.

The management of Dana Airlines Limited has reacted to the fire incident that occurred on its aircraft yesterday at the Port Harcourt airport and has apologized to its customers and the general public who may have been affected by the incident.

According to the spokesman for the airline, Kingsley Ezenwa, who confirmed the incident in a statement on Tuesday said no life was lost and no passenger was injured.

The incident which involved an aircraft operated by Dana occurred on Monday in Port Harcourt, the state capital, as Mr. Ezenwa explained that the aircraft with registration number 5N JOY was set to take off from Port Harcourt to Lagos when the incident occurred, stating that the pilot in command had noticed an anomaly before take-off which he queried with the Air Traffic Control (ATC) before embarking on a ramp return.

He said the impact on the brakes affected the aircraft tyres, causing them to spark off while the aircraft was taxiing to repark.

According to the airline official, all 50 passengers onboard disembarked safely while the aircraft was immediately grounded by the company’s maintenance team.

He apologised to the passengers on the flight for the inconveniences caused due to the eventual cancellation of the flight, adding that the incident was being investigated and any issues would be resolved.
