Why We Chose 7 Star Global Hanger For MRO Partnership, By Dana
The Deputy CEO of Dana Air, Mr. Sukhjinder Mann says his airline selected 7 Star Global Hanger as preferred Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) service provider “as a result of Dana Air’s commitment to the growth of the Nigerian economy and by extension the development of Nigeria’s aviation sector. We have always previously sent our fleet overseas for the heavy maintenance checks and now are proud to announce that we will be keeping this activity in Nigeria.”
He said the partnership deal “reverses the previously outward cash flow from the Nigerian economy whereby we used to pay foreign service providers and this means that these funds will now be retained within the country and will aid economic growth within Nigeria. I also believe that our appointment will also give a proudly Nigerian brand (7 Star Global Hangar) more leverage to compete with global MROs.”
The Dana Air boss further explained that the decision to appoint 7 Star Global Hanger was due to the exemplary maintenance track record of the MRO, which currently services and maintains the Presidential Air fleet and is fully equipped to carry out aircraft line and heavy maintenance including aircraft wheels and brakes, upholstery and general fix operations services.
According to him, ”Dana Air is reinvesting in the aviation sector, and promoting Nigerianization, and this gives me great pride as it is in line with our core value of putting Nigeria first in everything we do. I am also extremely grateful to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority for their support in both of our intention to keep the work in country and that of the approval granted to the MRO to service our aircraft type.’
