LONDON – Nigerian carrier Ibom Air has firmed an order with Airbus for 10 A220 aircraft.
This firming came as a result of a report from two days ago, stating that the airline was going to place an order.
Ibom Air commenced operations back in January 2019, and currently has a fleet of seven aircraft operating flights to five destinations.
Of the seven aircraft, Ibom Air has two A220s that it took over from Air Sinai as well as five Bombardier CRJ900s.
This now means the airline will have a fleet of 12 A220s, and keeping with the five CRJ900s brings the total fleet count to 17.
Ibom Air has taken some steps in its initial growth already this year, especially with its first domestic codesharing agreement with Dana Air made back in May this year.
For Airbus, this order now brings the total order count for the airshow at 404, which across four individual orders, is quite the feat in itself.
