Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has obtained a license from the government to operate an airline in the country.
The airline, Baby Jet Airlines is expected to commence operations soon.
This was announced by President Akufo-Addo at the 2017 African Airshow at the Kotoka International Airport.
It is unclear whether the airline will be operating as a domestic airline; within only Ghana or it will be operating as a regional or international company.
The NPP government has announced plans to open up Ghana’s local airline industry to attract more players and drive competition.
As part of this, the government in the 2017 budget removed the 17.5% VAT on domestic air tickets.
Also, efforts have been made to keep the price of aviation fuel at competitive rates in relation to Ghana’s peers within the sub region.
President Akufo Addo has also set an ambitious target to make Ghana an aviation hub within the West Africa sub region.
About 126 Exhibitors and 300 African and International attendees are participating in the 3-day event which opened on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.
