Akwa Ibom state owned airline, Ibom Air have acquired a new airline into its fleet of flights.

According to a tweet by the airline on Saturday, Ibom Air acquired its fifth bombardier CRJ900 aircraft which arrived Lagos from Calgary, Canada.

The statement read

Ibom Air is pleased to finally receive it’s 5th Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft, the 2nd of the 2 additional aircraft purchased in Dec. 2019. The aircraft, with registration number 5N-BXO, arrived Lagos from Calgary, Canada at 00:05 am local time, Saturday morning, (1st August, 2020).

“With the arrival of this aircraft, our modern and efficient fleet grows to five aircraft and Ibom Air continues to operate the youngest fleet amongst Nigeria’s airlines. This fleet strategy is in line with our vision to be a world-class African regional airline.

“A key benefit of Ibom Air’s very modern fleet of Bombardier CRJ 900 aircraft is that they all come factory-fitted with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters.

“HEPA filters are high-intensity filters that do not just filter dust, but effectively capture greater than 99.97% of the airborne microbes in cabin air, including microscopic particles such as bacteria and viruses.

“Cabin air in HEPA equipped aircraft generally pass through the filters every 2-3 minutes, removing contaminants and greatly enhancing the quality of air in the cabin.

“Ibom Air thanks the Hon. Minister of Aviation, the Federal Ministry of Aviation, the NCAA, FAAN, NAMA and the Akwa Ibom State Government, for their consistent support.

“We also thank our highly valued customers for your continued loyalty and assure you that Ibom Air is now better prepared than ever to continue to deliver the trademark services you have come to rely on us for: schedule reliability, on-time departures and excellent service

“As our destination footprint expands, we look forward to welcoming more and more passengers on board our flights.

Signed: Management”
