About Ghana Airways

Ghana Airways (Ghana Airways Limited) was the national carrier of the Republic of Ghana. The airline had its primary hub at Kotoka International Airport, in Accra. Ghana Airways was the name of an airline that was established in 1958 by the government of Ghana, which stopped operating passenger flights in 2004.

In 2020 it was announced that Ghana Airways was being revived. The Government of Ghana announced that the airline was set to be restarted, in partnership with Egyptair. Egyptair would provide technical and operational support.

The airline was going to be re-established, however, plans for this were soon dismissed. The government of Ghana are instead focusing on the launch of Ghana's new flag carrier airline GhanaAirlines, set to launch in 2023.

Ghana partners with EgyptAir to launch new flag carrier

The government of Ghana has partnered with EgyptAir to re-establish the new Ghanaian flag carrier, following the signing of A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Ghana in 2018 had signed a similar MoU with Ethiopian Airlines. However, the deal was held back due to disagreement over key points of discussion, including routes and funding.

The new airline will be operating from its headquarter in Accra, providing a network of routes throughout Ghana and elsewhere within Africa, as well as North and South America.
