Akwa Ibom governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has described the state-owned airline, Ibom Air, as the leading air carrier in Nigeria.
Eno made the comment after his maiden flight on the commercial airliner as the governor of the oil-rich south-south state.
He described the airline as the pride of the state, noting that its services are top-notch.
Governor Eno also shared photos of himself boarding, going through security checks and inside the aircraft.
”Akwa Ibom state’s pride, Ibom Air, has firmly established itself as a premier airline in the region, boasting top-notch services and unmatched reliability.
”With its fleet of modern aircraft and a commitment to passenger satisfaction, Ibom Air has set the bar high for excellence in the airline industry.
”Today, I had the pleasure of using Ibom Air for my official engagement outside Akwa Ibom State, and I must say that the experience exceeded my expectations as usual.
”The seamless check-in process, comfortable seating, and friendly cabin crew created an environment that made my journey very enjoyable. Awesome experience, indeed!”
Founded in June 2019, Ibom Air is the brainchild of the former Akwa Ibom state governor, Udom Emmanuel.
The airline flies 11 routes covering six cities in the country – Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Calabar, Enugu and Uyo.
There are plans for the airline to start flying outside Nigeria, according to its management.
