In order to ensure maximum utilisation of its modern airport, Akwa Ibom State has gone ahead to float its own airline company.
Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom announced this during the annual state Christmas carol, themed “Let the people say Amen”.
According to Udom, the newly-floated airline will be the first state government-owned airline in Africa and ready for commercial scheduled flights.
It was learnt that the new airline has a fleet of three aircraft, but service will commence with two aircraft which have already been branded in Canada, while the third aircraft will join the fleet by February 2019.

“Our state-owned and run Obong Victor Attah International Airport has a Category 2 runaway and work is on-going on the second taxiway. To ensure that our state remains the destination of choice for foreign investors, we are launching Ibom Air, our wholly owned airline that will lessen the problems currently being encountered by our numerous air travellers,” he said.
