An aircraft belonging to Ibom Air was spotted flying out of Uyo today, 22nd May 2019 on a supposed flight .
The aircraft (CRJ900) was seen landing at Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos and taking off after a while.
It will be recalled that Ibom Air was recently inaugurated in February, this year as a commercial airline by the governor of the oil rich Akwa-Ibom state, Gov. Udom Emmanuel.
There is a possibility that today’s flight is a demo flight to fulfill the requirements of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations for obtaining an Air Operator Certificate (AOC). This is a fundamental requirement that every airline must fulfill before it is allowed to operate in Nigeria.
