– Imo state is the first state in Nigeria to own and operate an airline company.
– The news of the inauguration of Imo Air is spreading fast with the citizens of the state rejoicing over the new achievement.
This is indeed a new achievement for the Igbos as they have made an impressive landmark for the tribe and the nation.
The Imo state airline would be operated by Dana Air. Governor Rochas Okorocha has ordered his stakeholders in the state to deliver the first batch of the aircraft to the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport in Owerri.
The carrier name of the airline is Imo Air; it would compete with other operators in the Nigerian aviation sector. It is hoped that it would boost the revenue of the state and provide massive employment for the citizens of the state and promote business opportunities.
