The Ghana Air Force recently won a UN air services contract to operate a UN aviation unit in Mali in support of the peacekeeping mission in that country.

President John Dramani Mahama dropped the hint yesterday during a farewell call on him at the Flagstaff House by the outgoing Spanish envoy to Ghana, Ms Olga Cabarga Gomez.

He said the government had successfully concluded a deal with the Spanish aircraft manufacturer, Airbus Military, resulting in the supply of two CASA 295 aircraft to the fleet of the Ghana Air Force.

Ghana received its last C295 (out of 2) in november 2011.
