The Ghana Airlines got a new life when the Zotus Group came onboard as financiers. The national carrier will fly to several domestic and regional routes, including services on global and European routes, when operations start.

It is also expected to operate flights to London and New York.

Ghana has been without a national airline for over a decade after the once-mighty Ghana Airways collapsed in 2004.

Government in 2019, awarded Ashanti Airlines and its operational and financial partner Zotus Group a tender to operate Ghana Airlines.

The Ghana Airlines has acquired an Air Carrier License (ACL) and is finalising its acquisition of an Air Operator Certificate (AOC).

Credible reports say Ghana Airlines’ fleet could comprise Boeing 787 Dreamliners alongside Dash 8-400 aircraft servicing regional and domestic routes.
