As part of plans to increase capacity and boost operational reliability, Ibom Air has taken delivery of one two leased Airbus A320 this morning at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport ( MMIA) Lagos.
The aircraft arrived around 6.04am this morning, from Getjet’s MRO facility in Madrid, Spain where it underwent delivery maintenance and livery adorning.
Getjet Airlines of Lithuania is an IOSA certified, wet-lease operator and will be delivering the second aircraft to Ibom Air this Sunday.
A source who spoke on the aircraft arrival, said the aircraft arrival will strengthen Ibom Air’s operations in the coming months especially as Nigeria’s peak season fast approaches.
Ibom Air since it took acquisition of new Airbus A220s from EgyptAir in June 2021 has seemingly favoured the Airbus brand especially with the signing of a purchase deal at the Dubai Airshow for 10 A220s in November 2021.
The well placed source says with both Airbus aircraft arriving to boost its operations, the airline will see increase its capacity and probably assist in route expansions.
