Starbow is a new Ghanaian airline

Aero Surveys Ltd, operating under the commercial name ‘Starbow’, based in Accra capital of Ghana, has commenced domestic operations with two BAe 146-300 regional jetliners.  The aircraft were supplied by Falko, based at Hatfield, now the owner of the BAE Systems’ commercial aircraft portfolio. (see AERBT 22 August 2011)

The two BAe 146-300 are equipped to high standards and configured with eight Business Class seats and 86 Economy Class seats.  Domestic services envisaged for ‘Starbow’ include routes centred on Accra and the important regional city of Kumasi and linking them to other destinations such as Tamale and Takoradi.

The company believes in the considerable potential for airline business in West Africa and will do its best to compete effectively within the Region.  Airline Business magazine, recently reported that 74% of Intra-African routes have no more than one daily flight and that some 50% of African city pairs are believed to be under served.  Aero Surveys Ltd plans to position its brand ‘Starbow’ in the West Africa region and will operate regional international flights with durations of up to two-three hours.  The company contracted Inflite UK to provide line and base maintenance. www.flystarbow.com
