The Government of Ghana and Ethiopian Airlines are in plans to open a new Ghanaian National Carrier. It has been quite a while since Ghana has had a national carrier after both Ghana Airways and Ghana International Airways went defunct in the early 2000s.
They have said that this airline will operate domestically and internationally from it’s hub at Kotoka Int’l Airport in Accra, Ghana. They expect the airline to be operating by 2020.
This news comes after the recent opening of the new $275 million USD terminal 3 at Kotoka Airport, now with jetbridges, handicapped accommodations, automated passport control, and the ability to accommodate aircraft such as the A380, which now flies regularly from Dubai to Accra.
My opinion on this is that this really proves Ghana’s new economic stronghold, and that they have earned the promotion from 3rd World Country. (If you would like more on the promotion, feel free to PM me). My family members that live in Accra and Kumasi are celebrating that their country is now prospering and that a new era is coming for Ghana, and Africa.
