Ibom Air CEO Calls For Government Intervention in Aviation Insurance



The Chief Executive Officer of Ibom Air, Capt Mfon Udom, wants the Nigerian government to help grow the capacity of Nigerian insurance companies to enable them handle aviation insurance completely. The premiums paid by Nigerian airlines to foreign insurances companies keep rising because of Presumed Country Risks. "The system at play now does not help the industry and the passengers are paying the price. Even the Nigerian economy is not benefiting from the current situation". Capt Udom said this when he received Ambassador Ikechi Uko, Organiser of Akwaaba African Travel Market at the head office of Ibom Air in Uyo.

Ambassador Ikechi Uko said he is in Uyo to Invite Ibom Air to the 2021 Edition of Abuja Jabamah where Ibom Air will receive the Award as the Best Airline in Nigeria for the Year 2020. Capt Udom while thanking them told the team that Ibom Air has done very well so far because it kept to its business plans, hired the best staff available and did not chase opportunities. "The Vision by the State Governor is to create a hub in Uyo, create jobs, and generate economic activity for the State. Our success is because of the Vision. We are happy with the honours that we have earned after providing good services to our passengers".

Talking about the challenges the airline faced in its 18 months of operation, Capt Udom said that the COVID-19 lockdown almost derailed the trajectory of growth for the airline. He said that the aviation company is back to the original path after covering up the gaps identified and will soon be announcing good results. The patronage has improved and today the airline has the best on-time performance in Nigeria.

On the Issue of insurance, he harped on the weak capacity of insurance companies. "No insurance company is able to completely insure a Nigerian airline. Then the reinsurance arrangements create 3rd parties and brokers that prevents efficient underwriting arrangements". He wants the Government to force the insurance companies to scale their capacity and maybe tweak the law to allow airlines deal directly with underwriters.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
