“This fleet strategy is in line with our vision to be a world-class African regional airline,” the airline said in a statement.

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.

The airline thanked the minister of aviation, the federal ministry of aviation, the Akwa Ibom state government, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria and all other stakeholders in the aviation sector for their support.

Ibom Air, owned by the Akwa Ibom state government, began commercial operations last year, flying Uyo to Abuja and Lagos.

Last month, the airline began operations to neighbouring Calabar, the Cross River state capital.

Recall that Ibom Air took delivery of the airline’s fourth Bombardier CRJ 900 aircraft in Lagos from Calgary, Canada on Tuesday, May 5.

When Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom state took delivery of the fourth aircraft, he noted that plans were underway to make Ibom Air dominate the aviation industry in Nigeria and the entire Africa continent in terms of services, professionalism and quality of aircraft.

He stated that the safety standards of Ibom Air remained unbeaten, and the hygiene regulations the best.

“We want to really dominate this industry with our services, the quality of our aircraft and the quality and professionalism of our own personnel.

“We have people to sell; we have services to sell and we have the best of the best of the aircraft to sell,” Governor Emmanuel said.
