Sustained private-public sector partnership is needed to actualise the operation of the Ho Airport, Volta Regional Director of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Mr Alexander Kwame Nketia, has said.

He said as part of the larger plans for 2021 by the Volta Regional Directorate of the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) to operationalise the Ho Airport for commercial activities.

He told the Ghana News Agency that a technical committee was exploring measures for a rapid take-off of the Airport with a promotional one-way fare pegged at GHC99.00 with the Africa World Airline (AWA).

AWA will provide twice-per week flight services, which is expected to start in April.

Mr Nketia said a proposal of Fridays and Sundays was being considered and the time schedules would be communicated at the appropriate time.

He urged the private sector to take absolute advantage of the situation as the services sector comes with running the airline business across the world.

He said shuttle and car rental services were crucial and appealed to the transport unions and the hospitality entities to position themselves to do business with the GTA and the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL), the accredited state institutions mandated to superintend over the industry.

The Regional Director said as part of its strategies, the GTA was developing sustainable packages or products that could meet the financial needs of the various clients.

Head of Business Development Services of the GACL, Madam Amma Faake Gadzekpo said at a recent stakeholders engagement in Ho that the facility was ready and that the Company was looking for the “right opportunity and timing to make it happen.”
