Fly540 Ghana (Accra) will shortly resume operations under a revised brand - Royal Fly-Gh (Accra) - the Acting Deputy Director General (Technical) of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Martey Boye Atoklo, has said.

“Fly 540 has had a change of name, but the Board of Directors remains the same. It’s now been renamed Royal fly540 and we expect them to soon start operations," he told Ghana's BF&T newspaper. "There are plans to bring new aircraft and start operations; it’s all about the equipment. They have cleaned their house, and with the change of name should come a change of approach to their operations."

Former parent fastjet plc recently sold the dormant carrier to UK-based firm, DWG-G Company Limited, for USD1.00. DWG-G owns both DWG-G Airways and DWG-G Cargo.

Citing viability problems, Fly540 Ghana suspended operations in May 2014 with its sole remaining aircraft, an ATR72-500 cn 826, having since been sold off.
