New Ghanaian Airline Plans Q1 Service To Baltimore-Washington, Removes Barrier To Hub Status

New Ghanaian airline Goldstar Air plans to start flights to the U.S. Baltimore Washington International Airport in the first quarter of 2017 if its air operator’s certificate comes through, according to CEO Eric Bannerman, Air Transport World reported. Ghana hasn’t had a national long-haul carrier since Ghana Airways, one of Africa’s oldest airlines, stopped flying in December 2015. Getting one will remove one of the stumbling blocks that prevented a Ghanaian airport from becoming a West African hub, according to an earlier AFKInsider report. There is no strong airline and no airport hub in West and Central Africa, Graphic.com reported.

Ghana Could Be Sub-Saharan Africa’s Fourth-Largest Oil Producer By 2020

Ghana’s oil output has been boosted with the start of production from the Tweneboa, Enyenra & Ntomme (TEN) project in August. The oilfield, which is expected to peak at about 80,000 bpd in 2018 has produced its first barrel, and is expected to maintain a steady flow of about 20,000 bpd in 2016.

We believe this has increased Ghana’s average oil output to over 100,000 bpd in 2016, considering ongoing challenges at the Jubilee oil field, which is yet to resume 2015 peak level production of 115,000 bpd. Based on existing fields and field development plans Ghana crude oil output is estimated to be over 240,000 bpd by 2019. This could potentially make Ghana the fourth largest oil producer in sub-Saharan Africa by 2020, based on existing fields and planned field development in the top ten oil producing countries in the region.
