It recognises the difficulties that staff have had to endure and assures them that every effort is being made to resolve the situation promptly,” it added.

 

Dana Air’s statement reiterated its dedication to working closely with the authorities in order to facilitate a seamless and prompt resolution of the audit.

 

The airline also assured all that it will continue to provide updates and assistance to its staff during this process.

Dana Air also has initiated discussions with lessors and is actively involving stakeholders in the ongoing progress.

 

“Dana Air therefore urges for calm and understanding from our very dedicated staff for their altruism and stakeholders,” the airline said.
