In 1958 the government of Ghana founded Ghana Airways with an estimated amount £400,000 as seed capital to run the state company. At the end of its first year of operation, the company made a net profit of US$28,000.
Things were moving on quite well until the company ceased operations in December 2015. Even before that, Ghana Airways had received several hits from the international community, including the United State of America who banned the airline from operating in and out of their country due to issue they deemed unlawful.
This year (2020), the government of Ghana, under the abled leadership of H.E Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, announced an MoU with Egypt air to restart Ghana Airways. Upon commencement, the company is expected to rehire all former staff of the company and begin operation with two aircrafts. Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobbey was appointed to man the affairs of the "New Ghana Airways" as Chairman of the airline.
However news coming in reveals that, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo is set to deliver 5 Airplanes to the Aviation Ministry to bring back the once dead Ghana Airways to life. The news as shared on an official NPP project platform attracted many comments on social media.
