President John Dramani Mahama says government is working assiduously to get a new national airline established on a Public-Private-Partnership basis soon, after a successful prefeasibility study.

“Government’s plan to set up a new national airline under a PPP arrangement to support the policy-objective of establishing Kotoka International Airport (KIA) as an aviation hub is also on-going. It is my expectation, therefore, that Terminal 3 will play a pivotal role to support the operations of this new airline,” President Mahama said.
