Transport Minister Kwaku Ofori Asiamah has revealed that Ghana Airways will be operational by June-July this year.
Speaking at a press briefing on Tuesday, the Minister said the airline will operate as a national carrier following the decision to award Ashanti Airlines, and its operational and financial partner, Zotus Group, a tender to commence business.
According to Mr Asiamah, most of the processes have been completed to ensure that it becomes operational by July.
“I think the government took a decision to join the private sector to make sure that we have a national carrier. So far, I can tell you that the proponents have done so well.
“The regulator had to make sure that it is well branded. And they have satisfied all the requirements and they will soon launch their logo,” he said.
It’s been 19 years since Ghana flew its own airline, although there have been some promises from the previous governments, Mr Asiamah gave the assurance that “Ghana Airways will fly again.”
“My information from them is that by the end of May, they will start selling their ticket and by June/July we will see Ghana airline, flying in the sky,” he added.
