Award-winning media personality and filmmaker Nanahemaa Adwoa Awindor has called with the government and other opinion leaders to revive Ghana Airways, the nation’s dismantled airline.
She claimed that by getting rid of the major airline, aspirations of those who were considering entering that industry were stifled.
She claimed that Ghana Airways made significant travel from Ghana to other nations possible for her while she was still hosting her program, “Greetings From Abroad.”
Speaking in an interview on Joy Prime’s Prime Morning, Madam Awindor said, “I felt more affected because it was more exciting to promote your home airline… A lot of people were going into that space, and I was very happy about it. So, when we didn’t have an airline anymore, it didn’t just affect those of us who were travelling. It was even those who were eager to grow into that space whose ambitions were curtailed, so we were disappointed, and I thought that was a bit unfortunate.”
She added that it was the most comfortable flight she had ever had and that the airline produced some of Ghana’s greatest pilots.
According to Nanahemaa Awindor, whomever decided to shut down the airline did Ghana’s economy a disservice because it had a detrimental impact.
“It is so uncomfortable to see that something that we could have grown into an amazing project, an amazing addition to our country, and could help a lot of businesses grow, we’ve just killed it off.”
Her dissatisfaction led her to decide to launch a campaign to ensure that the government restructures the airline.
“I think I have to start the campaign. Bring Ghana Airways back, please. Even if it’s one aircraft, bring it; we will grow it so it multiples,” she pleaded.
