Dana Air, Exit Door, Lagos, Akwa united FC, Paul Bassey

After suffering major setbacks in its operations, Dana Air, as part of its commitment towards sports development in Nigeria and making the Nigerian professional Football League more glamorous, has unveiled another sponsorship deal worth millions with the current NPFL league leaders Akwa United FC of Akwa Ibom state.

The flight company have not been having it all rosy with its operations in Nigeria as customers are still scared of have dealings with the company after the terrible crash that occurred some years back.

Of recent in the news, one of the flight clients shared his ugly experience on how Dana Air had refused to fix its aircraft as the exit door was unstable all through the flight and when they eventually touch down Lagos, the door was alleged to have fallen off. “Flew Dana. Exit door was unstable throughout the flight. As we touched down it fell off. Scary stuff.”

Under this deal, Dana Air will get branding opportunities for the duration of the season and fly the team to all its away matches in the 2018 NPFL season.  Also as part of the deal, the club’s player of the month initiative will be sponsored by Dana Air with a very good largess from the airline.

Speaking at the press conference to announce the deal, the Accountable Manager of Dana Air said, ‘let me first congratulate Akwa United for winning the league cup last year and for starting this season on a very impressive note.’’

‘Just like I said when we also unveiled our sponsorship for Heartland fc of Owerri, it’s not all about the branding opportunities or commercials, but our commitment to developing football in Nigeria and supporting the Nigerian league. It about making our league glamorous and encouraging the players to be the best. If we bring the passion with which we follow the teams in the EPL our league will be better for it. We have taken the lead, and we hope other corporate bodies will look in that direction.’’
