The trophy was presented by Mr Charles Nettey, the Airport Manager of the company, on behalf of Mr Eric Bannerman, the Chief Executive Officer of Goldstar Air over the weekend in Accra.

Mr Charles Nettey said the presentation was the company’s “widow’s mite”, and that, Goldstar Air would push the threshold of its corporate social responsibility beyond just assisting the promotion, preparation and development of sports in Ghana.

According to Mr Nettey, the pride and joy of the airline is to roll out products to cater for the needs of the Ghanaian, hence Goldstar Air would be plying twelve destinations from Accra.

These routes are Baltimore, Washington, Dubai, Guangzhou, London, Lagos, Monrovia, Abidjan, Freetown, Dakar, Banjul and Conakry.

“It will spread its net wide to ensure that the Ghanaian products from the company are suited to the needs of the tourism and aviation sectors.” Mr Nettey said.

According to him, the airline is coming up with Ghanaian concepts and will create about 5,000 direct and indirect job opportunities.

“Also, passengers would be given allocations of three checked-in bags coupled with giving the travel agencies GHC 5,000 seed money to boost and augment their operations, when they are registered on our selling platform.”

Mr Samuel Mankrom, regional Sports Organizer of the Greater Accra Youth Ministry of the church, accompanied by Mr John Tawiah and Mr Isaac Danso Otchere, both representatives of the Youth Ministry, received the trophy on behalf of the Church and thanked the Chief Executive Officer of Goldstar Air for his benevolence and support towards the fun games.

Mr John Ashong-Mettle, the Director of Cargo Services of Goldstar Air, Mr Theophilus Wilson Edzie, Director of Communications, Mr Edmund Lamptey and Stephen Glah of Goldstar Air were also present at the presentation.
