Dana Air to fly after Nigeria crash

An executive with Dana Air, the carrier that crashed in Nigeria and killed more than 150 people, says the airline will resume flying soon despite public concerns about its aging aircraft.

Lagos: An executive with Dana Air, the carrier that crashed in Nigeria and killed more than 150 people, says the airline will resume flying soon despite public concerns about its aging aircraft.

Gautam Hathiramani, a member of the airline`s board of directors, told a news agency in an interview today that the airline believes its fleet of five MD-83s is safe.

He said: "We have no hesitation to fly them again because we`ve always had them fully serviced and they`re certified they`re airworthy before they go up."
However, Dana has had safety concerns in the past, as its car importation arm once denied vehicles it sold needed maintenance when in fact they did.

A Dana Air flight crashed June 3, killing 153 on board and others on the ground.
