Posted 20 December 2016 · Add Comment

New Ghanaian airline Goldstar Air has received an Air Carrier Certificate from the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to operate scheduled and non-scheduled flights to 11 international destinations.

The company, which is waiting for its Air Operators Certificate to enable it to start full operations by the second quarter of next year, is also expected to fly to nine destinations.

It will be using the Boeing 767-300 ER for its long haul routes while the Boeing 737-300 ER will be used on the West Coast. 

The CEO of Goldstar Air, Eric Bannerman said: “When we start flying, we will be the third airline in Ghana to fly directly to the United States of America after Delta and South African Airways and the second to fly directly to the UK after British Airways,”

Bannerman added: “What is even more refreshing for our fellow Ghanaian businessmen and women who travel to China and Dubai is that we will be the first to fly directly from Accra to Guangzhou in China and the second to fly directly to Dubai.”
