Goldstar Air Rubbishes Media Report
The management of Goldstar Air on Wednesday, November 5, 2020 termed as fake and misleading a publication by frontpageafricaonline.com concerning their partnership with Liberia Flag Carrier, Lone Star Air, after the unveiling of the airline. Goldstar Air noted that they take serious view of the publication and want the public to see it as such, since they are in the process of obtaining their operator’s certificate to operate their own aircraft.
“Goldstar is a wholly-owned Ghanaian registered Airline and has acquired its Air Carrier License (ACL). The airline is on phase-3 of the five-phase process to obtain the Air Operators Certificate (AOC). Phase 3 and phase 4 is the presentation of the aircraft documents and inspection of the aircraft, maintenance base and training organization. The final phase, which is phase 5, is the presentation ceremony of the Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC),” A Goldstar Air release noted.
The release noted, “As a matter of fact, we have presented a letter to Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) for the pre-inspection of our aircrafts, and we are still waiting for the confirmation date for the inspection of our aircrafts.
“Goldstar Air is committed to building a state-of-the-art and trendsetting aviation industry able to compete within the international market in terms of safety, quality, reliability, punctuality, efficiency and costs.
“The President of Liberia, His Excellency Dr. George Manneh Weah, wants to create decent jobs for his citizens and has no plans to compromise with safety issues or put the lives of the Liberian citizens at risk.
“We are also aware that airline foreign companies will have to meet up with all requirements in line with the Liberia Civil Aviation Authority (LCAA), including International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards before being permitted to operate in the sector in Liberia.
“Goldstar Air will therefore want the general public to disregard the publication and look forward to an airline that will create jobs for the youth.”
