A statement signed by the GM, Marketing and communication of Ibom Air, Aniekan Essienette, noted that with the imminent entry into service of the A220, the work of their two wet-leased Airbus A320s would be brought to an end.
Essienette also stated that the transition from the wet-leased aircraft would lead to a reduced flight schedule for a few weeks as the first two recently acquired A220s will be phased into service.
The Airline’s Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, Mr George Uriesi, added: “we resorted to wet leasing aircraft to meet the growing demand for our product, while we worked on our fleet growth programme.
Now with these aircraft being delivered, it is time for us to benefit from the significant operating efficiencies and enhanced service the A220-300 brings to the business.
“We apologize in advance for any inconvenience our reduced schedule may cause as we transition into a period of better and stable all round service, with these new equipment.”.…CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
