Managing Director of Ghana Airports Company Limited fired

The appointment of the Managing Director of the Ghana Airport Company Limited, Mr Yaw Kwakwa has been terminated in line with the orders of President Akufo-Addo.

 Transport Minister, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah in a letter addressed to the Board Chairman of the Ghana Airport Company stated that  “in this regard, kindly take the necessary steps to give effect to the directive. I count on your cooperation.”

Mr. Kwakwa was briefing the press at the McDan terminal during a tour by the members of the Transport Committee of Parliament who were inspecting the facility when the news came in.

Though the reason for the dismissal was not stated in the letter, it is suspected to be as a result of the current McDan aviation tussle.

McDan Aviation announced had the suspension of its private jet operations at Terminal 1 of the Kotoka International Airport to enable the management of the company to hold talks with the Ghana Airport Company Limited over contentions regarding operational procedures.

This was after the GACL, in a letter dated 31st January 2022 prevented McDan Aviation from operating its private jet services at the Terminal 1 of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).
