Ghana boxing legend Azumah Nelson has held discussions with the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority about establishing an airline, days after fellow sports man, Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan announced plans to set up an airline of his own.
Aviationghana.com reports that the former WBC featherweight and WBC super featherweight champion held the discussions months ago and ‘The Boxing Professor’ and his business associates are now expected to submit some mandatory documents to the Authority for processing towards the granting of the necessary permits to enable him run an airline.”
The 59-year old’s interest in running an airline follows similar moves by Black Stars’ captain, Asamoah Gyan, who has secured an Air Carrier License (ACL) and is working to secure an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) before launching his airline christened “Baby Jet Airlines”
It is unclear what Azumah Nelson intends to call his airline but “Zum-Zum Airlines” sounds nice.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, at the just-ended maiden Africa Air Expo, pledged his government’s support for local investors who venture into the aviation sector.
