Ghana all-time record goal scorer Asamoah Gyan has obtained a license to operate a private airline in the country.
This was announced by Ghana’s President Akufo-Addo at the 2017 African Airshow at the Kotoka International Airport.
President Akufo-Addo said, “I’ve been reliable informed that the Captain of our senior national football team, the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan, Baby Jet has obtained an air carrier license and is working feverishly to establish an airline, obviously called Baby Jet airlines. I want to call on other Ghanaians both home and abroad to invest in the rapidly growing aviation sector.”
He said ““The number of international airlines operating in the country has increased marginally from 35 to 37 this year…other domestic airlines will hopefully follow suit soon,”
The African Airshow is the first aerospace and aviation exhibition and conference of West Africa and is being organized by Dubai-based 4M Events, organizers of the successful Abu Dhabi Air Expo for the past three years.
Baby Jet, the player’s airline will commence operations with cargo handling, before expanding subsequently to airlift travelers.
