If you have it in your plans to travel to Malta for a vacation, then we’ve got some good news for you. The government and authorities in Malta are in talks to allow the national carrier of Malta to commence flying to Ghana in the second quarter of 2020.
According to the Chief Executive of the Ghana Investment Promotion Center (GIPC), Yofi Grant, Air Malta is ready to fly to Ghana as it looks forward to expanding its Africa reach.
Mr. Grant said both countries will benefit from the deal if it finally goes through.
“We’re still in the process because we want to get the concept right as on the regulatory requirements, whether it will be airline operations involving a direct flight from Malta to Accra or a transit to the other African countries and vice versa,” Yofi said.
The decision to enter Ghana’s aviation industry is part of Malta’s efforts at opening up key sectors of its economy to the world.
Minister of Economy, Investment and Small businesses of Malta Silvio Schembri believes that Ghana stands out among many African countries hence the decision to use Ghana in entering the African markets.
He further urged Ghanaian companies to take advantage of the new incentive given to Ghana-Maltese relations by the reciprocal high-level visits and invest in Malta.
The occasion was used to sign five agreements between selected agencies in Ghana and Malta.
The agreements between the governments of Ghana and Malta are on medicine, bilateral air services, and aquaculture
