In a statement issued by the GACL management and sighted by GhanaWeb Business, it explained that deliberations were ongoing with the Airline Operators Committee (AOC) and the Board of Airline Representatives Ghana in consultation with the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

“In the circumstance, GACL has decided to put on hold all discussions on this. In the future, if and when a decision is reached, IATA will communicate same to all stakeholders,” part of the GACL statement read.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Transport, Kwaku Ofori-Asiamah, has been summoned by parliament following the proposal that went viral.

He is expected to appear before the House to respond to questions on the matter on March 19, 2024.
