GACL bars McDan Aviation from using Terminal 1 for private jet services
Management of the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL), has indefinitely suspended the operation of private jet services by McDan Aviation at the Terminal 1 of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).
This comes after allegations by GACL that McDan Aviation breached requisite protocols prior to the launch of its private jet services last week.
The launch which was held on Friday, January 28, 2022,was boycotted by leadership of the Ghana Airport Company Limited and government officials, including the Minister for Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, following the issues raised by GACL.
A statement by the airport authorities noted that “… failure to comply with the directive despite the outstanding issues on the prior terms and conditions for the use and operations of Terminal 1 as a Private Jet Terminal. Management has consequently directed the suspension of your use of Terminal 1 until further notice.”
Although McDan Aviation has satisfied all operational requirements to enable it open for business, it is reportedly yet to fulfil its financial obligations to GACL.
The Ghana Airport Company Limited further notes that McDan Aviation “is yet to agree on a Fixed Base Operator (Private Jet Terminal Operator) license fee with GACL.”
McDan Aviation allegedly owes GACL millions of dollars.
