Oresi, who said already Ibom Air currently covers six destinations added that the company’s target is to ply more routes next year.
“Currently, we have six destinations: Uyo, Lagos, Abuja, Enugu, Port Harcourt, and Calabar.
“We will definitely be expanding into a few places like Yenogoa, Asaba, Owerri, maybe Benin.
“But the next place we are working at is the North – Kano potentially, Yola potentially. But by the end of next year, we will have covered all these places we are talking about.
“We just started Port Harcourt in July, maybe before the end of the year, we will do one more,” he stated.

He explained that despite its partnership with Dana Air, the company would do all to maintain its schedule reliability, on time performance and excellent services, adding that its long term goal is to be a world class airline.
