Enugu State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has commended the resumption of daily flights services in and out of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.
Ugwuanyi, who welcomes Dana Air’s inaugural operations recently, said he was delighted to have the airline reconnect Enugu with Lagos and Abuja after almost a year of airport closure for repairs.
“We are happy to have a reputable airline like Dana Air in Enugu state. Enugu state is peaceful and our economy is growing really fast. With Dana air in Enugu, we now have the game-changer. Enugu is a salaried state and our people will be returning home soon. We are sure to have very efficient service with competitive fares,” the governor said.
Chief Operating Officer of Dana Air, Obi Mbanuzuo, said deploying flights on the route was the airline’s positive contribution to the economy of Enugu state and to also avail daily flight services from Enugu to Lagos and Abuja.
“Enugu state is peaceful and we are proud of your good work sir. We are happy to contribute our quota to the growth and development going on in the state, for the overall benefit of the good people of Enugu state.
“Dana Air is starting with one daily flight from Lagos to Enugu at 7.30, Enugu to Abuja at 9.05, Abuja to Enugu at 12.25, and Enugu to Lagos at 2.15 daily with a plan to increase the frequency in the coming weeks. We will offer seamless connectivity and options to the good people of Enugu state and our fares are very competitive when you plan your trip with us and book early,” Mbanuzuo said.
