Posted 22 September 2017 · Add Comment

With construction work on Accra-Kotoka Internationals new Terminal 3 flagship project moving into top gear some operators at the airport have had to change location to facilitate the development.

The airport expansion supports the country's ambition to upgrade its vital infrastructure by modernising & transforming the airport into a gateway for West Africa & as a regional aviation hub. It is also expected to contribute to the country's economy by facilitating market connectivity & by reducing the cost of doing business.

One of the effected companies is Mainstream Aviation. They are now well into the process of relocating to a purpose built facility which will house their Dispatch, Permit & OCC offices as well as aircraft charter & management teams.

CEO Captain Ladi Odulaja said: “Accra is ideally situated in West Africa to become the regions airline hub. The airport can also expect to see a continued growth in business aviation traffic over the next 5 to 10 years as the county’s’ economy grows & it is for this that we at Mainstream Aviation are investing & concentrating our efforts.

“With this in mind we have been looking at upgrading our staff training to an internationally recognised certificated level, improving our customer support services & our competitiveness.

“I invited business aviation ground support specialist, Global FBO Consult, to review all aspects of our operation & as a result I believe Mainstream Aviation is now a more efficient & customer centric operation ready to deliver our clients a world class service”
