McDan Aviation’s private jet services at the Kotoka International Airport will take one to two years, according to Yusif Jajah, a member of Parliament’s Transport Committee (KIA).

This was revealed, according to Yusif Jajah, at an important meeting in Parliament today, Thursday, February 3, 2022.

“From the meeting we had, I can foresee McDan Aviation operating commercially in the next one to two years because as we speak, he does not have the licence.”

“It is still now going through the process to acquire the commercial licence and it takes some time to acquire the licence.”

McDan Aviation ceased its services earlier this week after launching the service without the consent of the Ghana Airports Company Limited last week.

As a result of the violation of regulatory requirements, the Ghana Airports Company issued a directive suspending McDan’s private jet services activities.

McDan responded by calling for more engagements and direction on the next steps to take.

McDan’s services were suspended for a variety of reasons, according to Yusif Jajah, including the company’s failure to meet financial obligations.

“If you look at the letter technically, it stated some operational requirements and obligations. So it is not only the financial aspect of it. What he did was to get a private jet license.”

McDan Aviation announced the suspension of its private jet operations at Terminal 1 of the Kotoka International Airport on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, to allow the company’s management to hold negotiations with the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) over operational procedures disagreements.

This came after the GACL stopped McDan Aviation from operating its private jet services at Terminal 1 of the Kotoka International Airport indefinitely in a letter dated January 31, 2022. (KIA).
