According to Africa World, the Embraer ERJ-145 aircraft is now ready and is awaiting its delivery flight to Ghana next week from  Xi'an Xian Yang International Airport, China. In July, the Ghanaians entered into a joint venture with Haiku (China) based Hainan Airlines (HU) which sees the Chinese carrier having a controlling stake in the fledgling African carrier.
