Antrak Air (O4, Accra) is in the process of acquiring a pair of ATR72-500s ahead of a planned restart during the last quarter of the year Ghana's Citi Business News has reported.

Having suspended operations in June to restructure its business model, Antrak is now planning to resume domestic Ghanaian flights in early October.

However, unlike in the past when it wet-leased an ATR72-500 from Spain's Swiftair (WT, Madrid Barajas), Antrak has acquired its two 'new' Avions de Transport Régional (Toulouse Blagnac) turboprops outright. The first is currently undergoing pre-delivery checks and maintenance in Casablanca Int'l ahead of its delivery to Accra next month.
