A nine-member board of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has approved the resignation letter of the Director-General of the country’s air transport regulator, Air-Commodore (Rtd) Victor Kwame Mamphey.

The board was chaired by Air Vice-Marshal Christian Edem Dovlo.
Air-Commodore (Rtd) Victor Kwame Mamphey last week tended in his resignation letter to the country’s air transport regulator’s board, but reasons for his resignation were not clear.

The board also approved the date of the GCAA’s director-general’s resignation which takes effect from June 30, 2014.

Acting Director-General, Finance and Administration of GCAA, Mr. Abdulai Alhassan, has been asked to fill in temporarily as Director-General of the Authority.

Air-Commodore (Rtd) Mamphey was appointed Director-General of the GCAA in 2009, and is credited with overseeing transformation and growth of the aviation industry over the past five years.

With just one main domestic operator and a dozen international carriers flying to Ghana in 2009, he is credited with encouraging the growth of indigenous carriers and attracting strategic international airlines into the country.

There are now about 42 scheduled flights servicing the Kotoka International Airport, including three major domestic airlines; Antrak, Starbow and Africa World Airlines.

Under the leadership of Mr. Mamphey, the GCAA hosted the 23rd African Civil Aviation Commission Plenary Session in Accra in April 2013.

He is also credited with leading the GCAA to generate revenue for construction of a multi-purpose training facility at the KIA enclave to train aviation professionals in Ghana and the sub-region.

The seven-storey training academy and office complex is to be completed by August at a cost of US$10 million.

The GCAA, under his stewardship, was named the 2013 African Airlines Association Service Provider of the Year at the 45th Annual General Meeting and Summit held in Mombasa, Kenya.

On the issue of safety he has ensured that Ghana’s airspace is safe and secure, winning the confidence of international carriers.
