Ibom Air, the airline company owned by the Akwa Ibom State Government, says it has flown over 1.5 million passengers in its three years of existence.
In a statement signed by its management on June 7, 2022, the company stressed that it had conducted 22,000 flights, thus reflecting its promise of schedule reliability.
“Friday the 7th of June 2019, exactly three years ago, Ibom Air commenced scheduled commercial flight operations with an inaugural flight from Uyo to Lagos. Three years down the line, with over one and a half million passengers flown and about 22,000 flights later, Ibom Air has come to be known for its brand promise of schedule reliability, on-time departures and excellent service,” the statement celebrating the airline’s three years of service read.
The company’s Chief Operating Officer, George Uriesi, was full of gratitude to the management and the Akwa Ibom Government for the successes achieved so far. He said, “We are humbled by the overwhelming public acceptance and goodwill [that] we have enjoyed from the Nigerian travelling public, which has motivated us to remain resolute and determined to keep pushing the envelope as we contribute our quota to the growth and stability of the aviation industry in Nigeria and Africa.”
The airline has made plans to give back to its numerous customers by providing a chance to win free tickets and invitations to a private movie screening. It also plans to expand operations to regional routes later this year.
