Flagstaff House declared no flying zone

The seat of government, Flagstaff House and the Osu Castle have been declared a “no flying enclave” for airlines.

The new directive is contained in the new Civil Aviation Amendment Act 2016.

Also the act will ensure that passengers of domestic airlines who experience undue delays at the airport are compensated to the tune of GHC 16,000, if they decide to take on the airline.

The new act further stipulated that if an airline causes damage to luggage of a passenger without a tangible explanation, they can also earn up to GHC4,000 in a court suit.

The act also prescribes stiffer punitive measures for airlines that breach the safety regulation of the country.

The director of legal services of GCAA, Joyce Thompson told Starr Business the cost of an accident to the industry is huge and stringent measures are needed to engender deterrence.
