Arik Air To Revive Ghana Airways?
The Ghanaian government announced it will review a proposal submitted by the management of Arik Air, soliciting assistance to revive Ghana Airways. Under the proposal, Arik Air, based in Nigeria, will partner Royal Ghanaian Airlines, a fast-growing local airline, to use Ghana as a hub for its flight operations. With the aim of becoming a pan-African airline, Arik Air proposes to use Ghana ’s national colours on its aircraft to promote the country to the outside world. The Arik Air chairman said the group plans to establish an Aviation school in Ghana to train pilots and other airline staff for the aviation industry in Africa.
Ghana International Airways ceased operations in May 2010.
