Domestic airline, PassionAir has put in place measures to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
In compliance with the directives, the domestic airline said passengers will wear face mask throughout the flight.
After the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, safety protocols have been prescribed by the World Health Organisation, WHO.
These protocols are believed to help break the chain of transmission.
Samuel Takyi Marketing and Sales Manager for PassionAir in a radio interview said they are enforcing the wearing of face mask throughout their flights.
He also stated that they are putting in place measures to go by the social distancing protocol during their various flights.
“Before you board the flight you are expected to have your face mask which is to be throughout the whole flight and also we will be ensuring some kind of social distancing during the flight…”
President Akufo-Addo on Sunday lifted the three weeks lockdown of Accra, Kasoa, Kumasi and Tema but directed that all other protocols including wearing of a mask, hand washing and social distancing should be adhered to.
Markets and offices are also entreated to adhere to these protocols, some markets who flouted the directive have been closed down.
But the directive will affect the profit margin of the aviation industry players who are trying to implement the various measures.
With this safety protocols in place, passengers can now use the services of the various airlines and still be safe.
Financial Analyst Charles Mensah has also predicted a slow pickup for the Ghanaian economy post-Covid-19.
According to him, most sectors of the economy will take some time to recover
“Bouncing back will be slow, you don’t expect the hotels to recover quickly so bouncing back will be very slow.”
Expressing his views on the factors that will contribute to the slow recovery of the economy, Charles Mensah said the price of oil which forms the large part of our revenue projection has gone down.
“Now if you look at commodity market we are a new kid on the block in terms of oil but the prices of oil have just gone down and it is going to have a serious impact on our revenue if you look at our revenue projections of which large portion is coming from the oil sector and now the prices have gone down it is going to affect us.”
