After several months, the Akwa Ibom Government have just launched its new airline company, Ibom Air. The Airline is among Governor Udom Gabriel Emmanuel’s key projects for the state.

Although Ibom Air is completely owned by the Akwa Ibom State Government; its management would be professional and its operations will also align with world best practices. The Airline will provide 400 direct and indirect jobs in the state.


The airline will initially operate within Uyo-Lagos-Abuja routes to boost the state’s economy and tourism. This serves as a good development for the state.

Ibom Air will commence flight operations after the staff training, test run and when the regulatory authorities have certified it fit to fly in the Nigerian airspace.
