- The Director General of Ghana Civil Aviation Authority, Mr. Samuel Alottey said this new development will boost Ghana’s aviation.
The Director General of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Mr. Samuel Allotey, has disclosed that Ghana is ready to acquire five new airlines.
Mr. Allotey said the five new airlines are currently undergoing various stages of processing to start operations in Ghana.
They are Baby Jet Airline owned by Ghana football star, Asamoah Gyan; Montrac Air, Goldstar Air, Smile Air, and DAC Airlines.
These will add up to the two airlines available – Starbow and Africa World Airline (AWA).
However, due to the Starbow crush last weekend, its acitivites has been halted.
This means that AWA is the only airline available for internal travels.
The new airlines are said to already receive an air carrier license and presently undergoing certification.
The acquisition of the airlines, according to the GCAA Boss is expected to boost Ghana’s aviation sector, states a Joy Business report.
He also said that the arrival of the new airlines will initiate competition into the aviation sector.
Mr. Allotey added that there will be more options for travellers to choose from in the coming months or by the end of 2019.
We will also see a few more airline operators doing local, regional and intercontinental flights, he said.
