FG, Dana sign deal on reduction of airfares for government officials
As part of efforts by the Federal Government to reduce the cost of governance, Dana Airlines has agreed to give 50 per cent discount on air ticket for public officials on official duties.
The Efficiency Unit of the Federal Ministry of Finance last year requested for discount from airlines operating in the country.
The government is expected to realise about N5 billion yearly with this arrangement.
At the signing of the deal at the weekend, the Federal Government was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Finance, Alhaji Mahmoud Isa-Dutse and the Head of the Efficiency Unit, Ms. Patience Oniha while Dana Airlines was represented by the Head of Ground Operations, Mr. Ememobong Ettete and Mrs. Joy Nwogu.
Isa-Dutse commended Dana Airlines for being the first to partner the government on reduction of air ticket for government workers on official trips.
