19 May 2016, Accra — The scarcity of aviation fuel in Nigeria has triggered a boom in the Ghanaian aviation sector as more airlines now refuel in the country, Daily Trust has learnt.

Apart from the increase in uplifting fuel from Ghana, there are also indications that there was a significant rise in the number of aircraft that land at the Kotoka International Airport, since the ongoing shortage of aviation fuel in Nigeria.

As a result of this development and other ancillary factors, the aviation industry in Ghana is said to be enjoying a momentary boom, because more airlines now fly the route.

The Manager of Business Development and Statistics of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Reverend Stephen Wilfred Arthur, while reacting to the upsurge in demand for aviation fuel in the country acknowledged an upswing in capital inflows.
