Ghana Gets New Airline–Eagle Atlantic Airlines

From Ghana Business News

Eagle Atlantic Airlines, a newly certified Ghanaian international airline, has pledged its commitment to offer seamless connectivity by air for ECOWAS member states and to make Ghana proud.

Dr. Emmanuel Osei-Acheampong, Eagle Atlantic Chief Executive Officer, on Friday said the airline intends to fill the gap that have been left by the demise of Ghana Airways and Ghana International Airlines (GIA) the first wholly Ghanaian-owned flag carrier after Ghana Airways and GIA.

He said Eagle Atlantic’s operation would help to facilitate the ECOWAS ideal of free movement of its citizens.

Dr. Osei-Acheampong made the commitment during the presentation of the Air Operating Certificate to the airline by Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) at a ceremony at the Kotoka International Airport.

He said the airlines would work very hard to hoist high the flag of Ghana and also contribute to Ghana’s efforts to regain the FAA Category One status.

The FAA Category is one of the requirements for a country to have a national airline.
