WITH construction work on Accra-Kotoka Internationals new Terminal 3 flagship project moving into top gear some operators at the airport have had to change location to facilitate this major development.
One of the effected companies, Mainstream Aviation, are now well into the process of relocating to a purpose-built facility which will house their Dispatch, Permit and OCC offices as well as aircraft charter and management teams.
CEO Captain Ladi Odulaja comments “Accra is ideally situated in West Africa to become the regions airline hub. The airport can also expect to see a continued growth in business aviation traffic over the next 5 to 10 years as the country’s economy grows & it is for this that we at Mainstream Aviation are investing and concentrating our efforts.
With this in mind we have been looking at upgrading our staff training to an internationally recognized certificated level, improving our customer support services and our competitiveness.
I invited business aviation ground support specialist, Global FBO Consult, to review all aspects of our operation and as a result I believe Mainstream Aviation is now a more efficient and customer-centric operation ready to deliver our clients a world-class service”
The airport expansion supports the country’s ambition to upgrade its vital infrastructure by modernizing and transforming the airport into a gateway for West Africa and as a regional aviation hub. It is also expected to contribute to the country’s economy by facilitating market connectivity and by reducing the cost of doing business.
