Dana Air partners with Nigeria's Cross River State to set-up new domestic carrier Cally Air

Sept 08, 2016: Dana Air is partnering with the Nigerian state government of Cross River to develop a new domestic carrier, dubbed Cally Air (Calabar). The airline will start commercial operations from November.

According to a Nigerian news agency, state governor Ben Ayade told a media conference in the capital, Calabar, that the airline is part of his government's bid to encourage tourism to the state, situated along Nigeria's border with Cameroon and its Atlantic Ocean front.

Cally Air will be managed by Dana Group under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement.

Using the state's Dash 8-200 5N-GRS (cn 547), Cally Air is planning to start flights in November serving Obudu, Lagos and Abuja from its Calabar hub. Until recently, the VIP-configured Bombardier turboprop was operated by the now dormant Aero Contractors.
