One of Nigerian major carriers, Med-View Airline, has unveiled plans to make its Accra, Ghana operations, which it launched in September 2014.

To this end, the airline has completed arrangements to begin operations to Freetown, Sierra Leone in May 2016.

The Sierra Leone addition will increase its regional route from one to two while those of Dakar, Senegal; Monrovia, Liberia; Abidjan, Cote D’Voire would follow in due course via Accra.

The airline Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Muneer Bankole spoke at the weekend in Accra during the airline’s Trade Partners’ Forum with travel agents in the West African country.

The MD who was represented by the company’s Head of Flights’ Operations, Capt. Godfrey Ogbogu stressed that the airline is expanding to Ghana to deepen trade relations between the two countries, saying Nigeria and Ghana have always had a good business relationship.

He said the meeting with the travel agents underscores the importance the airline places on them as essential partners, saying Med-View is ready to build an enduring and open partnership with the travel agents.

“Med-View sees Accra as our home. We look forward to more cooperation and we are open for discussions any time. We have no hidden agenda. Accra will be a stepping stone towards the west. The market is expanding rapidly for all of us. We are going to London-Gatwick, we started Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and we will be opening up more routes, including Dubai, very soon”.
