Starbow Airlines Ghana has joined the African Airlines Association (AFRAA) as a member. The airline’s membership was approved by the Association at its ordinary 157th Executive Committee meeting held in Nairobi, Kenya late April 2012. Three airlines and four air transport related service providers were approved as members and partners respectively of AFRAA. “They include Camair-Co [Cameroon], Starbow Airlines [Ghana] and ECAir [Republic of Congo] as members of AFRAA and Aero Industrial Sales [AIS], Aero Mechanical Services [FLYHT], Mercator and IBS Software Services as partners of AFRAA,” as confirmed by AFRAA. This brings to 34 and 26 respectively the number of member airlines and partners of AFRAA, it added. AFRAA is a trade association of airlines which hail from the nations of the African Union. Founded in Accra, Ghana, in 1968, and today headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, the primary purposes of AFRAA are to foster commercial and technical co-operation among African airlines and to represent their common interests. The airline also has an arrangment with MYN Mobile Money to allow its subscribers the choice to pruchase their tickets through that mobile option.
