GACL shuts down McDan Aviation private jet terminal
Management of Ghana Airport Company (GACL) has shut down the newly launched private jet terminal belonging to McDan Aviation Company.
The latest decision follows the refusal of the company to halt the inauguration of the terminal as directed by MD of Ghana Airport Company Yaw Kwakwa over security and safety breaches.
African Editors’ sources have confirmed that armed security personnel Monday night stormed the terminal to closed it down.
Union leaders have in a letter to the MD expressed support to management as it seeks to ensure adherence to protocols whilst demanding outstanding financial obligations yet to be fulfilled by McDan over the acquisition of the terminal.
Speaking in an interview monitored by African Editors, Divisional Union Chairman of GACL Abdul Issaka Bamba disclosed that Ghana’s Kotoka International Airport risks downgrading over the breaches outlined in the GACL MD’s letter to McDan Aviation Company.
Mr. Bamba warned union members will not be deployed to the terminal if the concerns are not addressed.
Below is a letter by the union on the impasse between the Ghana Airport Company and McDan Aviation Company:
