It was a moment of joy and happiness for the executive governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano and the entire people of Anambra state, as the first commercial Embraer 195, E2 Aircraft landed at the Anambra state International Airport.



The aircraft landed this afternoon, at exactly 1:13pm with one hundred and ninety five passengers from Lagos.


Being the first Embraer 195, E2 Aircraft to land at the airport, governor Obiano was present at the scene to personally welcome the passengers were welcome and handshake everyone of them, starting from the pilot.


As expected, birds of Airpeace Airlines, one of the frontline carriers in Nigeria landed safely, from Lagos at Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport, Umueri.



This follows the approval by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for the airport to operate Boeing 737-700 aircraft or its equivalent. 


Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano was on hand to witness the flight debut flanked by members of the state executive council and others.


Recall that in a letter dated 24th January, 2022, the Nigeria’s Aviation regulator communicated the Governor about the upgrade based on satisfactory inspection carried out by the aerodrome safety inspectors. Congratulations to Anambra State.
