“We had a national airline which used to be the pride of Ghana and now that we are in government, we will deliberate and look at the possibilities available and decide on how to approach a revival of the airlines.”
“We would have wished that our carrier would be like Ethiopian Airlines, which is doing well in the aviation sector. This is not something we cannot do and, so, we will have a thorough analysis of the issues relating to a national airline and look out for the way forward. It will be our pride and will give us the international exposure we need for an airline to be called a national airline.”
The Aviation Minister-designate also mentioned that the current government would revise all contracts given out in the Aviation sector and decide if they would go forward with them or not.
“I believe that you need to have a second look at the programmes and be convinced that it is something you want to continue or not. You will need to find out whether the contracts and the projects were in order before you pump in additional money. And, so, our investigations will determine whether or not we should continue with the projects started by the erstwhile administration."
