Ethiopian Signs Agreement with Ghana

May 18 , 2019

Ethiopian Airlines has signed an agreement with Ghana’s government to begin giving local and international flight services from Accra. Tewelde Gebremariam, the Airline’s CEO, signed a strategic partnership agreement with Joseph Kofi Adda, aviation minister of Ghana. The Ghanaian government along with private investors will own 51pc of the newly formed airline, while Ethiopian will own the rest. Ghana Airways, in which the government had a 60pc stake, collapsed in 2004 and gave way to Ghana International Airways, 70pc of which was owned by the government. But that too ceased operating in March 2010. Ever since then, Ghana has not had a national carrier. This partnership for Ethiopian with another African country’s government will be the fourth one. In the past it had entered into partnerships with the governments of Malawi, Zambia and Guinea to restart existing carriers or start up new ones.
