Starbow Gets New Aircraft

Starbow, an indigenous domestic airline carrier and the CIMG Domestic Airline of the year, has taken delivery of a brand new ‘2015 next generation 78-seater Bombardier aircraft – Q400.

The arrival of the brand new aircraft at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) last Saturday was witnessed by some enthusiastic Starbow staff, as well as employees from other airlines.

As usual, personnel from Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) were also present to give the aircraft its maiden traditional showers- a welcome gesture.

The Q400 has many exciting features which include an excellent take off thrust power which gives it a climb rate and speed which competes strongly with any similar size jet, a 78 seating capacity with optimum pitch between seats giving excellent leg room comfort for passengers.

Furthermore, the seats are made up of soft leather and are therefore extremely comfortable. It also has a bright fresh interior with bright warm lighting, which gives the impression that the cabin is a lot larger than it actually is and a large wardrobe up front, which is ideal for hanging up suits, coats, packages etc.

According to the CEO of Starbow, James Eric Antwi, the acquisition of this new aircraft will assist greatly in the rescheduling of Starbow’s domestic operations, especially the Tamale route which was suspended in October 2014.

We will commence our Tamale operations with a minimum of 2x daily flights and more importantly the resumption of Starbow’s regional operations will be boosted, he added.
