McDan Aviation ordered to suspend use of KIA Terminal 1

The Management of the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) has ordered McDan Aviation to suspend the use of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) Terminal 1 until further notice.

“We refer to our earlier discussions and subsequent directive to suspend the inauguration of the private jet terminal at the Kotoka International Airport until all necessary operational requirements and obligations are met.

“We note with concern your failure to comply with the directive despite the outstanding issues on the prior terms and conditions for the use and operations of Terminal 1 as a private Jet Terminal.

“Management has subsequently directed the suspension of your use of Terminal 1 until further notice,” a statement signed by the Managing Director of the GACL Yaw Kwakwa said on Tuesday February 1.

The private jet terminal belonging to McDan Aviation Company was recently launched.

But the GACL earlier accused McDan of engaging “in several activities without prior approval from GACL which have typically called for emergency corrective actions.”

“We only became aware of your construction activities during routine security patrols, and we had to ask you to stop and submit a PCO [Plan of Construction Operation] for review and approval before construction continued,” an earlier letter said.

GACL said it was given short notice to offer logistical support, among others, at the commissioning ceremony.

“The nature of our work demands that we should have been given a reasonable period of notice to enable us plan adequately through engagement of relevant staff and stakeholders.”
