GhanaAirlines’ Is Expected To Be Operationalized In 2023

The government of Ghana has chosen a company to run “GhanaAirlines” as a home-based carrier, according to Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, Ghana’s Minister of Transport. “GhanaAirlines” is expected to start operating in 2023.

The Transport Minister made the remarks after parliament approved GH1.2 billion for the Transport Ministry and its agencies to carry out activities for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023. According to him, “GhanaAirlines” is anticipated to be operationalized in 2023 and will “fly the flag of Ghana.”

The sum is 33.06 percent higher than the initial budgetary allocation of GH921,483,000.00 for 2022. The amount for the fiscal year 2022 was then changed to GH832,028,321.00.

As of September 2022, the Vehicle Service had burned through GH¢461,824,396.84 as indicated by parliamentary records.

The government chose GhanaAirlines as the name of decision for the new locally established transporter of the country.

Prior to the selection, suggestions for names like Akwaaba Airlines, Black Star Airlines, and Kente Airlines were made in an effort to select a name that would both promote the business and reflect Ghanaian culture.

“GhanaAirlines,” the home-based carrier’s chosen strategic partner, was the subject of partnership agreements.”

Ashanti Airlines has reportedly been chosen as the preferred partner for the government’s new home-based carrier, according to reports.

Additionally, it is understood that Osei Kwame Despite and his partner, Dr. Ernest Ofori-Sarpong, business tycoons, own Ashanti Airlines and are close to completing the financial arrangements before operationalization begins in 2023.

For Tourism Purposes, Ghana Airways Needs To Be Revisited

Ashanti Airlines currently owns an Air Carrier License (ACL) and is working toward completing the issuance of an Air Operator Certificate (AOC), which grants the operator permission to carry out a specific type of commercial air transport.

Ghana has not had a national airline for international flight operations since the failures of Ghana Airways in 2004 and Ghana International Airlines in 2010.

Even though a number of memorandums of understanding were signed with EgyptAir and Ethiopian Airlines, efforts to reestablish a national airline fell through. As a result, a new committee was set up to review all proposals under the former Aviation Ministry, which is now run by the Ministry of Transport.
