18 September 2020

State-owned airliner, Ibom Air, made her inaugural flight to Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu on Monday NEGROIDHAVEN can say. 

Ibom Air which hit the aerodrome of Akanu Ibiam International Airport at exactly 9:07AM, was greeted by water canon and the government of Enugu State as well as visibly excited officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and other airport workers. 

Cecelia Ezeilo the Deputy Governor said 
'We are very happy and excited to welcome Ibom Air to Enugu State on its inaugural flight. We are partners in progress and we wish you success as you expand'. 

On their part, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the airline, George Uriesi, observed that 'We have moved from the federal capital, Abuja, to the commercial capital, Lagos to the Capital of Akwa Ibom, Uyo then we got into Calabar to get that part of the country and now we are in the South East.

Enugu is the gateway to the South-east and there are many states that use this airport, which include Ebonyi, Anambra; some people in parts of Benue State come here to fly, up to Ogoja in Cross Rivers State, so the clientele for this airport is huge.

'We are very happy to be here and we come with our unique selling point; schedule reliability, on time performance and excellent service. That's what we are about and we hope that as we provide that combination of three things to our customers they would reward us with their patronage,

'What's important is that when you have the right equipment, if someone carries 60 passengers and it doesn't work for him, we can carry 60 passengers and it will work for us.

'We burn far less fuel than those who fly the bigger aeroplanes, we have more reliability because the aircraft are relatively new and very well maintained. So far, it's been good,' the COO said.
