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.
