Posted 11 September 2017 · Add Comment

Air Mauritius has signed an MOU with the Ghanaian government over the provision of expertise in the establishment of a new Ghanaian national carrier, reports ch-aviation.

The agreement was signed in Port Louis last week following a visit by Ghana's Minister for Aviation, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, and her team. During the week-long stay, Dapaah held talks with Air Mauritius executives following which the preliminary agreement was signed on Thursday, August 31.

"This is a first," Arjoon Suddhoo, chairman of the Board of Air Mauritius, said in a statement issued after the signing ceremony. "Ghanaians are very interested in the model of Air Mauritius, which is a company whose majority shareholder is the government. It is also listed on the Mauritius Stock Exchange. We are a commercial aviation company that creates value for our shareholders. We also have a mandate to contribute to the development of the country."
