The Director-General of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Simon Allotey has disclosed that local airline company, Baby Jet Airlines will begin operations by next year (2018).

In an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, Allotey said this will only happen barring any major changes to its plan.

“If the company works very hard and their manuals are found satisfactory and they have the aircraft they intend to operate and assuming all things are in place, then within six months they can complete the certification process.”

Baby Jet Airlines is owned by Black Stars Captain Asamoah Gyan.

The airline has been granted an Air Carrier License some months ago and has since started the processes to obtain an Air Operator’s Certificate.

The process to secure an Air Operator Certificate comprises about five separate steps.

The steps include providing business operation manuals, aircraft acquisition, crew and management information, among others.

However, according to Allotey, most airline companies delay the process at the stages where they need to acquire airlines.

“Sometimes some of these airlines go through phases one to three and delay at the fourth phase because they delay in acquiring aircrafts. But mostly on the average, most of the airlines take twelve to eighteen months to complete the process,” he added.

Baby Jet Airlines will be the third local airline when it eventually rolls out.

Allotey is certain this development would also boost domestic air travel.
