Baby Jet Airlines to begin operations next month

The much anticipated Baby Jet Airlines is expected to fully begin operations in February.

Deputy Minister for Aviation, Kwabena Otchere Darko announced that Baby Jet Airline is among other Airlines expected to commence work next month.

"This year, we are looking at new operational areas that will bring in more customers or tourists, so we are linking more of our projects with the tourist centres,” Mr. Darko stated.

He added: “Apart from Passion Air, we also have Unity Air now operating, and we are expecting Baby Jet Airlines, which will be on stream by next month, and we have others also going through the processes, so, at least, we should have about five by close of the year."

It would be recalled that President Akufo-Addo announced in 2017 that Asamoah Gyan had acquired a licence to operate an airline in Ghana.

This was during the African Airshow held at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).

The footballer himself later disclosed that 95% of work to get the Baby Jet airlines started has been done.

“I can confirm 95% of work has been done and hopefully between December and latest by January next year, the airlines will fully be operational,” Gyan told Accra-based Okay FM in December.
