McDan Aviation has suspended its private jet operations at the Terminal One of the Kotoka International Airport from today till further notice.

This is as a result of a notice to suspend the use of the Terminal 1 of the airport from the manager of the  Ghana Airports Company Limited, Yaw Kwakwa. The letter dated January 31st, states “we refer to our earlier discussions and subsequent directive to suspend the inauguration of the Private Jet Terminal at Kotoka International Airport (KIA) until all the necessary operational requirements and obligations are met.”

However McDan Aviation failed to “comply with the directive despite outstanding issues on the prior terms and conditions for the use and operations of Terminal 1 as a Private Jet Terminal” – the letter states. Therefore, “management has consequently directed the suspension of your use of Terminal 1 until further notice.”

In response to the above McDan Aviation has accepted to suspend its operations pending the necessary engagements with GACL and key stakeholders. Read the below statement:
