Goldstar Air was a planned Ghanaian airline which failed to launch.
Goldstar Air was a planned Ghanaian airline which was supposed to have its base at Kotoka International Airport in Accra. Goldstar Air was founded in 2014 as Goldstar Airlines. It planned to begin operations on 13 June 2014 with twice-weekly flights to Baltimore in the United States and London's Gatwick Airport, followed by Guangzhou, China and Natal in Brazil. Although Goldstar Air had planned to begin operations to both regional and long-haul destinations but unfortunately, it never commenced operations.
In January 2016, the airline announced it would begin a training programme for flight attendants. Goldstar Air would employ local Ghanaian flight attendants but will initially employ expatriates for the cockpit crew. In June 2016, Goldstar Air said it was working on obtaining its Air Carrier Licence, after which it would receive its Air Operators Certificate (AOC) and commence operations by the third quarter of the year.
Goldstar Air provided a total of 69 kilograms per passenger, and a three-piece baggage allowance with hand luggage not exceeding ten kilograms to ensure that our passengers are able to transport sufficient luggage for their personal use.
Goldstar Air planned to launch flights between Accra and Baltimore. The airline also planned to fly to other destinations across West African cities.
