Since the commencement of its operations on June 7, 2019, Ibom Air lifted its 500,000th passenger on Monday, March 1.
George Uriesi, Chief Operating Officer Ibom Air, tweeted Monday, “We’re very pleased to record this key milestone of 500,000 passengers. Although we would have clocked this number around November of last year but for the three & a half months Covid-19 lockdown, still, it is an indication of steady customer uptake, & validation of our services.
”We are most thankful to our customers for believing in us and continuing to rely on our unique proposition of schedule reliability, on-time departures, and excellent service.
”As we continue to grow apace, we are determined to continue to deliver on our customers now very high expectations.”
The airline commenced operations when a Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft marked Ibom Air took off from Victor Attah International Airport (IATA: QUO), Uyo, with government officials on board, en route to Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
