Performing indigenous state-owned carrier, Akwa Ibom owned and based Ibom Air, has recorded its 2 millionth passenger on December 16, 2022; having started operations on 7 June 2019.
The airline’s sophisticated algorithm had calculated that the milestone would be reached on the 16 of December. And the exact flight turned out to be the 11:30am Uyo to Lagos flight.
The management of Ibom Air, led by the COO, Mr. George Uriesi, were on hand to do the countdown to the 2 millionth passenger, who turned out to be Ms. Ifeoma Chiadika, a 22-year-old, fresh graduate of Communication Arts from the University of Uyo!
Congratulating Ms. Chiadika, the COO said “We congratulate you on emerging our 2 millionth passenger. Ibom Air greatly appreciates your patronage and we do not take any single one of our 2 million passengers for granted. We promise to continue to work hard to maintain the high standards that we have come to be known for and customers like you, have come to expect of us”.
Ms. Chiadika, the lucky passenger, was gifted with a premium return ticket and a certificate of recognition as Ibom Air’s 2 millionth passenger!
Ibom Air commenced operations on 7 June 2019. Since then, the airline has operated more than 27,000 scheduled, commercial flights. The airline is ready to commence regional flights in the first quarter of 2023 as it prepares to expand its reach throughout the continent of Africa, operating out of the soon to be commissioned, ultra-modern hub terminal at Victor Attah International Airport, Uyo, the airline’s home base.
