Ghanaian airline Starbow operated its first international flight, from it base at Accra to Cotonou, in neighboring Benin, on 13 August. Flights to Cotonou will initially operate five times a week, but will eventually increase to daily. The airline is also planning to add services to Abidjan, in Côte d’Ivoire, in September. Routes to Monrovia, in Liberia, and Ouagadougou, in Burkina Faso, are also being planned. Starbow currently operates three BAe 146-300s: 9G-SBA (msn E3125), 9G-SBB (msn E3123), and 9G-SBC (msn E3183), and is awaiting the delivery of a series 200. A leased series 300 was recently returned to South Africa.
