The Ghanaian government has stated that it would remain committed to its partnership with Ethiopian Airlines in establishing a domestic airline for the country.
The Aviation Minister, Joseph Kofi Adda, said in spite of the fatal crash on Sunday, March 10, 2019, Ethiopian Airlines remained one of the best airlines in the world in terms of safety and standard.
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday March 12, the minister expressed his deepest sympathy to management of Ethiopian Airlines and families of the passengers who perished in the crash.
Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Ethiopian Airlines in December 2018 for the formation of Ghana’s domestic carrier.
Adda explained that in February 2019, a Ghanaian delegation was sent to Ethiopia for further negotiations on the deal.
He said a shareholding agreement would be signed between Ethiopian Airlines and Government of Ghana subsequently after which a special board will be formed to oversee the management and operations of the domestic carrier.
Mr. Adda noted that steps were being taken to improve passenger safety in Ghana and that Government would continue to comply with ICAO regulations on air safety.
