McDan Aviation (Ghana) (Accra) has obtained a commercial passenger air carrier's licence from the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), allowing the business charter operator to expand into a new niche.

GCAA records show the permit covers chartered passenger and cargo services in both the domestic and international markets. The carrier did not disclose any specific growth plans other than saying that the move will create additional job opportunities. It hinted at undefined planned "domestic and international" operations.

"McDan's foray into the airline industry is a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and our zeal in contributing to Ghana's aviation sector. We look forward to revolutionising air travel within Ghana and beyond," said McDan Group founder Daniel McKorley.

The business charter airline operates a single Bombardier Challenger 604, T7-MCDAN (msn 5319), as well as a single Beech (twin piston) King Air B200 and a single Airbus Helicopters EC135 T1. It has had a cargo licence since 2017.

The Ghanaian carrier did not respond to ch-aviation's request for comment.
