As part of its corporate social responsibility, Dana Airline in partnership with Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL) took pupils on an educational excursion of airport facilities, which includes a first hand experience of how an air plane works.
The week long expedition programme saw the airline opening its aircraft doors to over 500 pupils drawn from various schools across Lagos State.
Chief Pilot of the airline, Captain Segun Omale, while welcoming the pupils to the aircraft provided by Dana Air for the expedition, expressed happiness that Dana Air is once again leading in the drive to impact on the lives of children.
“We are a caring airline that will continue to pay serious attention to issues that concern proper education of the future generation and our commitment to take the children on this all important excursion is anchored on our firm belief that a well informed child represents hope for the future of mankind as information drives the development of any nation” he said.
Capt. Omale added that Dana Air through its Kidz Fly Programme has always given children the chance to be ferried from one state to another aboard an aircraft.
“It will be recalled that through the airline’s charitable trust, the Sri Sai Vandana Foundation (SSVF), Dana Air has been fulfilling its Corporate Social Responsibility with an In-flight Envelope Donation Programme, which has helped to raise millions of Naira for the National Sickle Cell Centre in Lagos since 2009,as well as involvement in the Autism Awareness Drive.
