Ghanaian airline Starbow added a second international route on 8 November, when it began services from it base at Accra to Abidjan, in Côte d’Ivoire. The route will be operated five times a week initially, and then every day. Starbow is considering adding services to as many as twelve other cities in the region by the end of 2013, with plans for services to Monrovia, Freetown, Lagos, and Ouagadougou being particularly advanced. The airline 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. The airline’s expansion plans would require it to at least double the size of its fleet.
