Excerpts of the reports confirmed that the Air Traffic Control cleared the pilot in command of the flight to land.

In 2013, The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and its foreign partners, the Flight Safety Group, carried out an audit on Dana Air's operations. In 2016, it applied to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and became a member.

The airline said: "We therefore welcome the recent audit ordered by the Federal Government and we are willing to work with the team and the FG to demonstrate our commitment not just to flying but to flying safe.

Our route and fleet expansion program is still very much on course and we remain dedicated to our recent interline and aircraft partnership with Asky airline, another formidable airline in Africa.”
