Reacting to the report yesterday, Dana Air in an official statement signed by the airline’s Media and Communications Manager, Kingsley Ezenwa, stated: “Our attention has been drawn to a report insinuating that a Dana Air plane crashed somewhere in Lagos on Sunday, 11 December, 2016.

The airline further maintained that, “At Dana Air, the safety and comfort of our guests and crew is a major priority to us and we will continue to adhere strictly to all local and international regulations in the delivery of safe, reliable and world-class air transport.
