New Ghanaian airline plans trans-Atlantic routes
Goldstar Air, a new carrier from Ghana, is going to operate flights to the US Baltimore Washington International Airport in the beginning of 2017, if it gets its operator certificate. The West African country has not had a domestic long-haul carrier since Ghana Airways stopped operations in the end of 2015.
Having a national long-haul airline will remove one of the obstacles that were in the way of any Ghanaian airport becoming a regional hub. With no strong carrier and no large hub present in Central and West Africa, Ghana could potentially fill the niche.
Goldstar Air has plans to commence flights in February-March of 2017, servicing not only US-bound routes, but also such destinations as Dubai, London and Guangzhou. The carrier would operate a fleet of two Boeing 737-300s and three 767-300s.
