Dana Air to resume flights following June crash

Nigerian airline Dana Air has resumed flights after a crash in June which killed 163 people. The carrier has not yet determined the cause of the crash, nor has it paid insurance to the families of the dead. Dana Air has had to slash its prices to half that of its rival airlines in order to sell tickets on flights, which resumed last Thursday. The incident involved one of Dana Air’s MD-83 aircraft. It crashed in a neighbourhood near Lagos on June 3, killing all those onboard and 10 on the ground. Dana Air’s fleet is comprised solely of MD-83s.
