McDan Aviation has launched the Ghana’s first Private Jet terminal at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), in Accra. The terminal boasts of an ultra-modern jet lounge, shopping center, meeting rooms and more.

The lounge of the private jet terminal has a conference room for people who want to have business meetings at the airport, without necessarily going into the city upon arrival. The availability of the conference facility offers an opportunity to do business and return on that same day and within hours.

Daniel McKorley, the CEO and Executive Chairman of the McDan Group of Companies, said the launch marks the start of more significant achievements in the country’s aviation industry. He said: “The goal behind this private jet lounge is to position the country’s aviation industry amongst the best in the world. The lounge is not for McDan rather, it is for the business community and top-class executives, and this is one of the places we can be recognised amongst the leading countries when it comes to aviation,” he said.

According to Daniel Mckorley, the private jet services will serve the needs of high-end customers in a state of elegance while providing a quick and efficient journey for corporate clients on their business trips.

The businessman currently operates and manages the executive lounge for private jets at Terminal 1. McDan Aviation, after acquiring a Fixed-Base Operator (FBO) license from the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL), will kickstart its commercial private jet services with three aero planes (including a challenger 604 and a Global Express XRS) and one helicopter.

Also, plans are in place to acquire other aero planes, including a Challenger 604 Bombardier, a Gulfstream jet and helicopters.

The facility boasts of VIP lounge, crew lounge, flight planning office, conference facilities and a hangar. Passengers and crew can complete customs and immigration procedures in the same building, which also features a restaurant that can provide in-flight catering.

McDan Aviation now caters for full ground handling services at KIA Terminal 1.

This includes general aviation operations, aircraft service operations, aircraft airframe and engine repairs (maintenance) and aircraft rentals.
