Ghana footballer and captain of the national team, Asamoah Gyan continues to expand his name’s power as he ventures into the aviation business.
The former Sunderland and Al Ain striker has obtained a license to operate an airline company in his home country.
The airline would be known as Baby Jet Airways, Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo disclosed while addressing participants at the first Aerospace and Aviation Exhibition of West Africa, dubbed “African Airshow” in Accra Wednesday morning.
President Akufo-Addo said the football star has obtained a carrier license and would be starting operations with cargo handling in Ghana soon, before expanding subsequently to passenger service.
“I’ve been reliably informed that the captain of our senior national team, the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan has obtained a carrier license and is working feverishly to establish an airline obviously called ‘Baby Jet Airline,’’ the President said.
Gyan is making efforts to ensure his future after football while creating jobs with a number of investment ventures in the country.
The all-time Ghana top scorer recently set up an events and logistics company named Jetlink to add to his growing list of businesses which reportedly include 17 others – a music and entertainment company, boxing promotion syndicate, food, transport, water, real estate, mining and student hostels.
