McDan Aviation has been asked by the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) to suspend its private jet operations at the Terminal 1 of the Kotoka International Airport. In a letter dated January 31, 2022, Managing Director of the Airports Company, Yaw Kwakwa, wrote “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”.
This letter was on the back of McDan Aviation refusing to adhere to earlier directives not to operate the terminal but held an inauguration ceremony.
The GACL has also taken note of some operational breaches hence the directives. “You are kindly requested to relinquish the keys to enable Management to undertake a Joint Inventory by close of business day, Monday, January 31, 2022″, the letter further directed to the CEO of McDan Aviation.
In a reply letter written by the CEO of McDan Aviation, Daniel McKorley stated, “we write to officially arrange for the engagement. While at that, we will also appreciate your guidance on what will be the most appropriate step to take.” “We are writing to officially inform you about our decision to suspend our operations at the Fixed-Base Operator (FBO) with immediate effect”.
The Airports Company ordered McDan Aviation to suspend the use of Terminal 1 until further notice.
