The letter also asked the dismissed workers to submit all their IDs and other company assets in their possession to the administration.

It added that, “On your last day of work, kindly liaise with the Human Resource and Administration Department to submit all company assets in your possession, including but not limited to ID cards, equipment, cell phones, work products (electronic and paper files) etc.”

“Upon receipt of these items, the payment of any outstanding amounts as stated due will be authorized.”

The reason for the dismissal is not known. Industry insiders have said that it could be due to the recent incident involving one of the company’s aircrafts or operational challenges facing the airline.

It is also unclear how many workers have been dismissed, however, sources say top management, flight and grounds staff have all been affected.

Starbow is one of the two domestic airline companies operating in Ghana.

It has been in operations since September 2011. Already, three airlines, CityLink, Antrak and Royal Fly Gh, are yet to resume operations after suffering a similar fate about four years ago.
