According to Ghanaontheglobe.com reports, the minister added that the larger capacity aircraft such as a DBKJ or an aircraft ATJ 319 will always be considered for international trips like France, Belgium, South African instead of the Falcon even if  it’s air ready.

“The decision to travel particularly to long and multiple destinations such as the president travelling to France, Belgium, South African and back to Ghana especially during this covid time will always require a larger capacity aircraft such as a DBKJ or an aircraft ATJ 319 even when the Falcon is air ready,” he stated.
