IBOM Air operated its 10,000th flight on Monday, 17th May, since it commenced flight service in June.
A statement signed by IbomAirlines Limited’s GM Marketing and Communication, Aniekan Essienette, stated that flight QI 104 departed from Uyo to Lagos at exactly 4.15 pm local time.
The 10,000th flight mark comes a little over two months after the airline celebrated its 500,000th Passenger recorded on the 1st of March 2021, a figure that has since been exceeded.
Before boarding the Uyo Lagos flight, the passengers had the opportunity to have their pictures taken with the banner announcing the flight.
They also had a little extra something in their goodie bag as a way of saying a special thank you.
The COO of Ibom Air, George Uriesi, was on the ground with the Ibom Air staff to greet the guests at the historic flight, as well as other management staff.
He used the opportunity to thank the flying public for choosing to fly with Ibom Air, “an honour we do not take for granted” he said.
