The name “GhanaAirlines” has been chosen by the government for the nation’s new domestic airline.
Prior to the decision, names like Akwaaba Airlines, Black Star Airlines, and Kente Airlines were suggested as part of the search for an appropriate name that would promote the business and reflect Ghana’s culture.
But when presenting the 2023 budget to the legislature on November 24, 2022, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta announced, “Mr. Speaker, Shareholders and Partnership Agreements were signed with the selected Strategic Partner for the Home-Based Carrier which would be known as “GhanaAirlines.”
Ken Ofori-Atta continued, “The airline is anticipated to be operationalized in 2023.”
Although the finance minister withheld additional information regarding the potential shareholders and partners, it has been reported that Ashanti Airlines has been chosen as the government’s prefered partner for its new domestic carrier.
