Dana Air has proposed a two-day familiarisation tour of Ibom Hotel and Golf Resort on February 23, 2018 as part of efforts towards developing tourism in Akwa Ibom State.

The airline’s communications manager, Mr. Kingsley Ezenwa who announced this in Lagos today said Dana would fly travel agents, tour operators and media to the state.

“We are supporting this familiarisation trip as result of our firm commitment towards developing tourism in Nigeria and contributing positively to the economy of any state we fly.’’

“You cannot talk about tourism without aviation and vice versa, and it’s not just about flying to a state but helping to build the potentials of the state,” he said.

Commenting on the initiative, the chief executive officer of Nigeria Travel Week, Efetobo Awhana said the major objective of the tour operator “is to promote domestic and inbound tourism in Nigeria.”

“We are convinced that we have a huge market that can buy into domestic tourism with sustained and strategic promotion and we believe this familiarisation trip will help travel professionals, and media to learn more about the destinations and make it easier for them to sell to their customers.

“We are grateful to Dana Air for always being committed to its corporate social responsibility and Ibom Hotel and Golf Resort for supporting,” he said.

It would be recalled that Dana Air, the official carrier of Akwa United FC of Akwa Ibom State, operates over 27 daily flights from Lagos to Abuja, Port Harcourt, Uyo and Owerri.
