DANA Air has declared a free one-year flight ticket for the Guinness World Record-breaking Chef, Hilda Baci, and three months free flight ticket has also been announced for Hilda’s mother.
According to a media statement from Dana Air, its Chief Operating Officer, COO, Ememobong Ettete, while speaking on the rationale for the support for Hilda Baci, said Dana Airline will always support the craft, creativity, efforts, and innovations of young Nigerians who embody the true Nigerian spirit as a proudly Nigerian brand.
Ememobong Ettete, further said, “We have always blazed the trail in terms of support for the arts and entertainment industry, health care, and culture and our corporate social responsibility has been all-encompassing.”
Ettete said Dana Air as a responsible and responsive corporate organization was inspired by Hilda’s strength and determination for greatness.
The COO also paid tribute to Hilda’s mum and pledged thus, “We shall be supporting her mum with 3 months of local flights for free. We thank Hilda’s mum for giving us an amazing daughter and for being a huge support system to Hilda.”
Ettete noted that Hilda’s mum is a successful chef and reasoned that she must have gotten the inspiration from her mum.
He expressed gratitude to all those who came out to dispassionately support Hilda describing them as “the real MVP”, he said.
The Grammy award singer, Burna Boy, also displayed his support for Hilda Baci, during the competition when he posted a motivating comment thus, “Go Hilda. We are rooting for you to break that record. And I trust that the food will go sweet and die,” he wrote.
