“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 its three years of service read.



    Ibom Air’s Chief Operating Officer, George Uriesi, was full of gratitude to the company’s management and the Akwa Ibom government for the opportunity to fly.

    Uriesi said, “We are humbled by the overwhelming public acceptance and goodwill 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 disclosed plans to give back to its community a chance to win free tickets and a private screening of a movie to thank its numerous customers.

    It also plans to expand to regional routes later this year.
