Lagos: A Nigerian airline resumed domestic flights on Thursday, seven months after one of its planes crashed, killing at least 163 people.
Dana Air sold tickets on Thursday for flights between the West African nation`s capital, Abuja, and its largest city of Lagos.
It was an Abuja-Lagos flight that had crashed on June 3 in a densely populated neighbourhood near Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, killing 153 people on board and at least 10 on the ground.
Officials have said that the plane`s pilots reported both engines on the MD-83 failed before the crash. However, Nigeria`s government has not announced any explanation as to what might have caused the crash.
Airline officials and government sources did not respond to requests for comment.
