All you need to know about Goldstar Air – Ghana’s newly international Airline

Goldstar Air is a wholly-owned Ghanaian airline that will be initially flying to twelve destinations, namely London, Baltimore Washington International Airport, Dubai, Providence International Airport, Guangzhou, Dakar, Lagos, Monrovia, Abidjan, Freetown, Conakry, Banjul, and pending cities such as Atlanta-Georgia, Chicago-Illinois, Glasgow-Scotland and Houston-Texas.
The wholly-owned Ghanaian airline will fly one of the world’s youngest fleets, featuring the world’s most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly aircrafts, and will project a fleet of more than 100 modern aircrafts to more than 90 key business and leisure destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, the Caribbean, and North America.
Goldstar Air will provide affordable and available international business and provide job opportunities, including aviation-related training to Ghanaians, especially the youth. Our intentions as Ghanaians is to build a state-of-the-art and Trend-Setting Aviation industry able to compete within the international market in terms of Safety, Quality, Reliability, Punctuality, Efficiency and Costs.
The airline will initially create a minimum of 5,000 direct and indirect jobs in Ghana. Pilots, Ground Service Crew, Maintenance Personnel, Cabin Crew, Counter Agents, Travel Agents, Tour Operators, Country Managers, Station
Managers, Accountants, flight dispatch, Drivers, Marketing Personnel, Air Marshalls, Cargo Agents, Catering Services, Hotel Accommodations, Fuel Suppliers, and others are among the jobs that will benefit the youth and the general public at large.
The airline will give an incredible customer experience by providing the greatest service possible, as well as contributing to the growth of the Ghanaian economy by making foreign travel affordable and accessible. Improve Ghanaians’ lives by making international travel more affordable and accessible and will also export trained labor through agency on call, charter, and aircraft leasing. Goldstar Air is committed to the development of Ghana, so its cabin crew will sell Ghana-made items and promote Ghana tourist attractions on board and
will feature 70 percent local content, including Ghanaian food, music, movies, and announcements in the majority of our Ghanaian languages, and aims to improve the Ghanaian economy by providing affordable fares and incentives
to travel agents. The airline’s aim is to advocate the cause of Ghana’s socioeconomic progress by selling made in Ghana items, promoting Ghana tourist attractions, and projecting the entertainment and cultural sectors on board our aircraft.
Goldstar Air intends to use Tamale Airport (TML) as its second hub and has secured the Architectural Design and Building Order for the construction of our Aircraft Maintenance and Repair Organization (MRO) and is now awaiting the allocation of the piece of land by the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) to build a 250 x 250 x 75 Twin Hangar at the airport which can accommodate two (2) largest passenger aircraft ever developed A380
(maximum certified capacity for 853 passengers) or many narrow and smaller aircraft at the same time as we look forward to regaining Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Category I (CAT I) status for Ghana.
The Aircraft Maintenance and Repair Organization (MRO) Facility will be named after the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, as the airline sees it as a way to expand job opportunities for the people of Northern Ghana and to open up business opportunities in the Northern sector of the country. The airline also intends to construct a cargo village and a city project called “Goldstar City,” which will encapsulate a training school for engineers, pilots, cabin crew, and other airline staff. A career in aviation, particularly as a pilot, is a dream for many people, so the Flight School, which we are looking forward to being approved by the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the European Union Aviation Safety (EASA), will help some Ghanaians realize their dreams.
Tamale’s Cargo Village will offer a variety of freighting, warehousing, and customs clearance services – all from a centralized location – and it can also accommodate freight arriving from various modes of transportation such as road, rail, and air, which is unloaded, collected, prepared, and reloaded for onward transportation. By providing high-quality services to its partners, the village aspires to become one of Ghana’s most important economic engines in the cargo and logistics industries. The cargo village will handle a large portion of the region’s air carrier market and hopes to attract more strategic investors to achieve its planned growth.
Goldstar Air will also organize charter flights for Ghanaians to and from Tamale to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the annual Hajj pilgrimage, as well as other Muslims across Africa, and for this project, the airline will train more
Ghanaian pilots and cabin crew who will be on call and work on a contract basis whenever a charter service is available or as and when our fleet expands.
The airline’s strategy is to use the country’s rich tourism and cultural resources to also competitively position the northern enclave as a preferred tourist destination in the country and the West African sub-region and to
attract foreign investors, local and international tourists, and visitors to the area.
The country’s northern enclave, which includes the Northern, North East, Savannah, Upper East, and Upper West Regions, are rich in diverse rich tourism attractions, a melting pot of highly diversified cultures, inventive arts,
and warmth, which must be harnessed and packaged for enhanced marketing and promotion to develop a thriving tourism industry that will create jobs, reduce poverty, and increase per capita income in the area.
With the capacity building of Ghanaians and all projects in place, Goldstar Air will be achieving its projected fleet of  more than one hundred (100) modern aircraft to a network of more than ninety (90) key business and leisure
destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, the Caribbean, and North America as well as aiming to be a high-ranking preferred choice and to be recognized as one of Africa’s top one hundred (100) companies.
In the United States of America, Goldstar Air has received two years of free landing, parking, advertising, and office space from Mr. Pimentel, assistant vice president Air Service Department at Providence International Airport,
and Mr. Storck, director Air Service Department and Strategic Analysis at Baltimore Washington International Airport.
In Scotland, which will be our future destination, we have been offered similar incentives where we have one year free parking, landing and office space by Mr. Paul White who is the business Development Manager and Mr. Robert
Love Aero Commercial Analyst at Glasgow International Airport. We will collaborate with Ghana Post Services to improve courier services and give opportunities for local insurance companies to cover our wide-body aircrafts in Ghana, enhancing the insurance premium-to-GDP ratio (GDP).
