Nigerian Ibom Air purchases ten Airbus A220 aircraft

The Akwa Ibom state government-owned airline in Nigeria, Ibom Air has signed a firm order for ten Airbus A220s at the Dubai Airshow. Nigeria, with the largest population in Africa and the largest GDP, offers substantial growth potential in both domestic and regional travel. The A220 is therefore the ideal choice for a full range of services from very-short-haul segments to intra-continental air routes.

Ibom Air currently operates two A220s. The airline flies to Uyo, Abuja, Calabar, Enugu, Lagos, and Port Harcourt. The purchase of the new A220s will enable the airline to continue on its growth path, offering new routes across not just Nigeria, but to the west African region and throughout Africa at large.
