Local airline Starbow has upgraded its safety pedigree in the industry with the acquisition of Operational Safety Audit Certificate from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

The CEO of Starbow, James Antwi, believes the development will boost his airline’s customer base as it is currently the only local airline to acquire the certificate.

“When you have achieved such a standard you can also have agreement with international airlines who also have such certificate with such registry,” Antwi told the media at the announcement of the milestone.

The acting Director General of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) Abdullai Alhassan told Starr Business other airlines must be motivated to follow suit.

“So far as safety is concerned they are at the top there. If you are competing with somebody and the person is now certificated in standards, so far as safety standards are concerned what it simply means is that others should also follow suit,” Alhassan noted.
