GIA go bust after government withdraws support
Ghana International Airlines (GIA) officials have confirmed that the airline has gone bust with less than GH¢200 in its bank account. The airline's head of costs and accounting has expressed disappointment that the government has decided to withdraw its support for GIA instead of exploring alternative options to deal with the airline's plight.
GIA CEO Gifty Annan-Myers meanwhile has described the government's claim that it was unaware of GIA staff salary arrears as false and misleading. She insists that several letters have been sent to the ministry over the past few weeks and they could not have been unaware that workers had not received their salaries for the past three months.
