APA-Johannesburg (South Africa)

South African Airways (SAA) has concluded a memorandum of understanding that would see it spread its wings in Ghana “to enhance a relationship through synergies that include code sharing, franchising and any other related projects.”

The MoU, signed between SAA Chief Executive Vuyani Jarana and Africa World Airlines (AWA)’s Chief Executive John Quan was signed at the Ghana Ministry of Aviation in Accra, APA learnt on Tuesday.

“As part of our turn-around strategy, we are constantly looking at ways of improving our customers’ travel experiences.

“This agreement gives our customers seamless connections from Johannesburg into more destinations in Ghana and other West African destinations,” Jarana said.

The accord augments the national carrier’s popular and successful Ghana operations and offers customers a host of additional travel options in Ghana as well as further afield in the West African state’s coastal region.

“As the leading carrier on the continent, our aim is to improve air travel connections on the continent through partnerships and this agreement with AWA goes a long way towards improving intra-African travel,” Jarana said.

Quan said the partnership would help consolidate AWA’s position as one of the leading airlines in West Africa.

 “We are excited by the potential that this African partnership can deliver and are confident that it will be a win-win relationship for both sides,” Quan said.
