Earlier in the year, Ibom Air was awarded the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification, another testament to its commitment to the highest safety standards in the industry.

On this, the COO said: “the achievement of IOSA certification, the imminent entry into service of the new, ultra-modern hub terminal in our home base, the commencement of aircraft maintenance at the brand-new MRO facility also in Uyo, and the forthcoming delivery of our first brand new Airbus A220-300, together represent a pivotal moment for the Company as we prepare to expand our services into West and Central Africa in the second half of the year”.

The COO also expressed, on behalf of the board, management, and staff, the profound gratitude of the airline to its loyal customers, associates, and stakeholders across the country and beyond for their support these past four years.
