Indigenous carrier Africa World Airlines is rejecting reports by Bloomberg that they are planning to acquire two COMAC ARJ21 jets from the Chinese aircraft maker.

The Head of Commercial for the airline, Richard Kyereh, said although they are in touch with Comac there are no plans of making any purchases soon.

“We are speaking with COMAC and hope to get more information on the exciting new product they are proposing to sell to us, but there are no plans to order any aircraft at this immediate time,” he said.

Africa World Airlines is partly owned by Chinese HNA Group and other shareholders which include SAS finance (Ghana), Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT)-Ghana and Zongjia Investment Limited- China.

The Airline currently operates to four regional capitals in Ghana namely, Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi and Tamale as well as four other destinations within the sub-region to Lagos, Abuja, Freetown and Monrovia.
