[ACCI-CAVIE] The Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) has ordered the newly launched McDan Aviation to suspend the use of Terminal 1 at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), until further notice.
In a letter signed on January 31,2022 by the Managing Director of the Airports Company, Yaw Kwakwa, he referenced a notice to the company to suspend its inauguration of the Private Jet Terminal last Friday, which was not adhered to.
Consequently, Mr Kwakwa said, “We note with concern, your 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.”
The CEO of McDan Aviation has been “requested to relinquish the keys to enable Management to undertake a Joint Inventory by close of business day, Monday, January 31, 2022.”
The Ghana Airports Company Limited has accused McDan Aviation of breaching the laid down procedure after procuring its license to operate in 2019.
It raised concerns in a letter last Friday, January 28, the scheduled date for the McDan Group of Companies’ Private Jet Service launch at KIA Terminal 1 in Accra.
