The Minority in Parliament has charged government to make public details of its investigation into the operations of McDan Aviation services.

According to Ranking Member on the Roads and Transport Committee, Kwame Agbodza, the sector Minister needs to brief the House on the state of investigations whether the Aviation company has the green light to operate or otherwise.

In an interview with JoyNews, the Adaklu legislator observed that Transport Minister, Kweku Ofori Asiamah, will be hauled before the House should he fail to make the recommendations available.

“It is the same thing that happened to McDan Aviations, which is still in abeyance, we went there, and we spoke to them, but up till now, government has not told us what decision they are going to make.

“Is McDan going to be allowed to continue operations? We don’t know. If they are being stopped from operating, what are the basis? That is the number of questions we need answers to,” he stated.

The Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL), on January 1, ordered the newly launched McDan Aviation to suspend the use of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) until further notice.

In a letter signed on January 31, by then Managing Director of the Company, Yaw Kwakwa, he referenced a notice to the company to suspend its inauguration of the Private Jet Terminal last Friday, which was not adhered to.

Consequently, he said, “We note with concern your failure to comply with the directive despite the outstanding issues on the prior terms and conditions for the use and operations of Terminal 1 as a Private Jet Terminal.

“Management has consequently directed the suspension of your use of Terminal 1 until further notice.”

The CEO of McDan Aviation was “requested to relinquish the keys to enable Management to undertake a Joint Inventory by close of business day, Monday, January 31.”

The company has accused McDan Aviation of breaching the laid down procedure after procuring its license to operate in 2019.

It raised concerns in a letter on January 28, the scheduled date for the McDan Group of Companies’ private jet service launch at KIA Terminal 1 in Accra.

Despite a GACL directive to call off the event, McDan Aviation went ahead to hold the ceremony. It was, however, boycotted by GACL leadership.

Amidst the exchanges, Parliament’s Roads and Transport Committee visited KIA to inspect the McDan Aviation facility.

Meanwhile, the issue has been resolved, and the aviation company has started operations.
