She acknowledged that the training of pilots in Ghana is very expensive hence the government’s readiness to partner educational institutions as tuition remains high.

“I will listen to you if you have the ways and means of partnering government to make sure we train our teeming youth who are intelligent and talented to be part of this aviation industry and the boom that we are expecting,” she said.

The Domestic Aviation space is expected to see some growth and competition this year as four carriers are currently going through the final necessary requirement to start operations.
