NCAA Restores Dana’s AOC


The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), yesterday, reinstated the Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) of Dana Air which was suspended following the accident involving one of its aircrafts, MD 83, at Iju-Ishaga area of Lagos State on June 3 this year.

However the airline’s operations remains grounded because it failed to show proof to the regulatory authority that any family of the victims has been paid the $100,000 – full insurance claim as required by law.

Dana Air Managing Director, Mr. Jacky Hathiramani, failed to provide evidence that any of the beneficiaries has been paid the $100, 000 insurance compensation claims as demanded by the Director General of NCAA, Dr. Harold Demuren.

So far, Dana Air has only paid about 80 families the 30 percent ($30,000) insurance claim as required by law, while some families have taken the airline to court over its inability to pay them compensation over the loss of their loved ones.

Hathiramani confirmed that 80 individuals have received the $30,000 initial claim payment, while only five families have gotten the required Grants of Probate and are currently going through re-confirmation before the Insurance Company can pay the remaining 70 percent of the insurance claims.
