Ghana to make another attempt at starting a National Airline

image029ACCRA, Ghana – Ghana’s much anticipated new national airline is expected to take off by March this year.

That would happen after accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers presents its interim report on the proposed national carrier to the government.

The firm was contracted in 2014 to work out modalities for the country’s new carrier.

Deputy Transport Minister, Joyce Bawah-Mogtari, confirmed the government’s plans to have the new airline airborne in March 2015.

She said PricewaterhouseCoopers is going to advise on credible strategic investors in the airline.

“Chances are it might be an existing airline with a seriously obvious brand…it might be one of our domestic carriers that is willing to partner with the government to bring back this airline”, said Bawah-Mogtari.

She said although the time looks short, the government is committed to ensuring the national airliner takes off in March.

“Three months is a long time for a lot of things to happen and the government has actually indicated its preparedness to this in the shortest possible time”, she said.
