Abuja - Nigeria's Dana Air resumed flights on Friday, seven months after one of its planes crashed into a Lagos apartment block, killing 163 people in the country's worst airline disaster in two decades.
The government lifted a ban on the airline in September but an investigation is ongoing and there is still no official explanation of the crash.
Dana Air's five remaining McDonnell Douglas MD-83's operating in Nigeria have a capacity of 140.
Airline spokesman Tony Usidamen said 67 passengers were on board the resumed Lagos-Abuja flight on Friday and 82 on the return journey.
"There was a round of applause for the very smooth landing," Usidamen said by telephone.
Tickets were sold for as little as 14 400 naira ($92) one way, around half what some airlines are charging. Dana Air will only be flying the Lagos-Abuja route for the time being.
