Asamoah Gyan has received a license from the Ghanaian authorities to operate the airline.
Kayserispor striker who has over 100 performances in Ghanaian national team, is a great entrepreneur. Although the 31-year-old is still running around the pitch (three appearances in the Turkish league this season), he has already established several companies, creating many jobs for his compatriots.
He owns event management companies and produces drinking water, he has transport companies, real estate investment, and has an entertainment team called Asaband. Recent reports suggest that this is not an end.
Gyan's license was announced by Ghana President, Nana Akufo-Addo. So far, it is not known how well the player's airlines will operate - whether they will offer domestic travel or whether they will go outside Ghana. However, their name is already known - Baby Jet Airlines. According to the Ghanaian media, the opening is approaching and it should happen pretty soon.
Granting Gyan's license entails a desire to increase competition in the aviation market by the Ghanian authorities. Akufo-Addo, after handing over the player's licence, appealed to other indigenous entrepreneurs to invest in the sector.
