Starbow becomes first Ghana-based Q400 operator
Starbow became the first Ghana-based operator of the Q400 turboprop when it launched service with a Q400 NextGen aircraft, wet-leased from Falcon Aviation Services of Abu Dhabi. The aircraft is one of six that Falcon ordered from Bombardier in 2014. As announced in July 2014, Falcon and Bombardier have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in which they will jointly address the need in Africa for several modern, high-quality aircraft solutions which meet international standards. The entry-into-service of the Q400 NextGen aircraft with Starbow re-emphasizes the collaboration arranged under the MOU.
