Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority has suspended the operating license of Dana Air – the airline whose plane crashed on Sunday in a Lagos suburb.
“Their operational licence has been suspended until we carry out their recertification,” spokesman Sam Adurogboye told the BBC.
The Senate also suspended the Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Mr. Harold Demuren.
The Dana Air plane that crashed in Lagos was bound for Abuja. The pilot noticed a problem and was trying to return to the Murtala Muhammed airport when the plane crashed into a building in a residential area in Lagos.
All 153 passengers on board the plane were killed.
