By Graphic

Ghana International Airlines (GIA), the country's new national carrier, has stated that the airline has since its inaugural flight established a reputation for higher value and on-time performance.

The airline which has seen the 100th flight since its inauguration in October last year, operates a daily non-stop flight between Accra and London's Gatwick airport.

A statement issued in Accra by the airline said GIA had transported over 12,000 passengers since its inception, treating them to a product that combined traditional Ghanaian hospitality with modern safety and performance standards, the release stated.

“Our safety, affordable and on-time services are proof that we are fulfilling the core mission of providing the highest standards of services that our passengers value,” the release quoted the Chief Executive Officer, Mr Brian Presbury, as saying.

The airline also announced plans to start serving other routes in West Africa, starting from Easter.

“The addition of West African destinations to GIA's Accra-London route is part of the airline's vision of making Ghana the West African hub,” the statement said, adding that it would offer the West African travelling public better routes to their destinations.
