As a major player in the global aviation industry, Delta acknowledges the importance of the Ghanaian market and underscores its commitment to providing top-notch services for passengers traveling to and from Ghana.

The Managing Director of International Communications for Delta Airlines, Rahsaan Johnson in an in interaction with Ghanaian media at the Atlanta Headquarters of Delta,  emphasised the airline’s commitment to reliability within the Ghanaian market. Dispelling rumors circulating mainly on social media platforms that the aircraft serving African routes, particularly Ghana, are obsolete or unsuitable for travel, Rahsaan highlighted Delta’s strategic focus on ensuring a dependable and consistent air travel experience for passengers in Ghana.

He further touched on the several awards Delta Airlines has received, highlighting its consistent recognition as the most distinguished airline in the United States for customer service, satisfaction, reliability, and punctuality.

“I would say Delta is first of all the most awarded airline in the United States of America. For several years, at least 10 years, Delta has had the highest ranking in customer service, customer satisfaction, reliability, fewest cancellations and most on-time performance,” he said

Rahsaan Johnson to a greater extent disclosed that customers traveling from Accra have consistently rated Delta among their top choices for satisfaction across Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.

“Our focus in Ghana is to uphold the already high levels of customer satisfaction. Passengers flying with Delta from Accra consistently provide us with some of our highest satisfaction ratings across Africa, Europe, and the Middle East,” he emphasized.

While addressing concerns about aircraft selection, Rahsaan, made known that the multiple award-winning airline operated a diverse fleet capable of serving global destinations, stressing that the planes deployed on Ghana routes are also used for flights within the United States, Europe, South America, and beyond.

He specifically asserted that the Boeing 767-300 aircraft used for flights to and from Ghana, also caters to some of Delta’s most valued customers on routes like New York to Los Angeles.

In the words of the director, “The 767-300 airplane that we fly to Ghana carries some of our highest-paying customers en route between New York and Los Angeles for example. The aircraft that we fly to and from Ghana, is the right size aircraft for us to be financially successful in Ghana.”

“What we want to do is to have a strong business that allows us to give the right amount of service to the community so that we can fly that route every day, so we can fly that route and be successful. The alternative is a larger airplane for fewer flights a day or fewer flights per week,” he added.

With air travel playing an integral role in connecting nations and fostering economic and cultural exchanges, reliability becomes a cornerstone for airline success. As Delta continues to operate in the Ghanaian market, its commitment to reliability is not only a commitment to punctuality but also an assurance of consistent service quality. The airline industry is highly competitive, and Johnson’s statement signals Delta’s intent to distinguish itself through a reputation for reliability.

Delta has operated nonstop service from Accra to New York-JFK since December 2006. Delta currently operates a daily flight and has overall, transported more than 1,350,000 customers between Ghana and the United States since 2006.

Holy Child alumni illuminate the path forward amidst national school power crisis

Published

HOPSA SOLAR PANEL 1

In recent times, the narrative of power challenges in Ghanaian schools has escalated, with numerous public institutions such as Mfantsipim School, Accra Academy, and Mondo Senior High Technical School among others facing abrupt electricity disconnections. 

This persistent issue highlights the dire need for sustainable solutions in powering educational facilities, crucial for maintaining the quality of education.

Stepping into the spotlight with a pioneering initiative, the 1999 alumni of Holy Child School have set a remarkable precedent.

 In a bid to combat these electricity woes, these visionary women have successfully funded the transition of their alma mater to 75% solar energy. This initiative not only addresses the immediate problem of power outages and financial strains on the school’s budget but also serves as a beacon of climate-positive action with the potential for carbon credit benefits.

Founded in 1946 by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, Holy Child School has long stood as a bastion of educational excellence and societal impact in Ghana. Its alumni include distinguished personalities such as Ghana’s Ambassador to France, Anna Bossman; Goldman Sachs Vice President, Sabina Dankwah; and University of Ghana’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Nana Aba Amfo, to name a few.

The Solar Project

This solar project, a gift from the 1999 alumni commemorating their 25th anniversary and coinciding with the school’s 78th speech and prize-giving day, symbolizes a profound act of giving back and forward.

 In an exclusive interview with the Business and Financial Times, engineer Ing. Mrs. Sheila Enyonam Akyea, president of the year group, shared:  “This project builds on the foundation laid by our predecessors. We’re thrilled to extend their initial contribution, ensuring every corner of our school benefits. It’s our way of ensuring current and future students receive the same level of empowerment and opportunity we had.”

Project’s Committee Chair Ing. Mrs. Teresa Kyei-Mensah, mentioned the substantial investment the solar installation demands, emphasizing ongoing fundraising efforts.

she said: “Once completed, the initiative promises significant savings for the school and, by extension, the Ghana Education Service, redirecting funds towards essential educational resources,” she added.

Solar power, increasingly recognized for its affordability and environmental benefits, stands as a viable solution for Ghana’s educational sector and its broader climate goals. With abundant sunshine year-round, Ghana is ideally positioned to harness solar energy, reducing the financial burden on public resources while contributing to global carbon reduction efforts.

The project was completed in January 2024 after a 1-month testing phase. The year group eagerly anticipate the handover ceremony at the 78th Speech and Prize-Giving Day of Holy Child School in Cape Coast on Saturday, 9th March 2024 marking a significant milestone in their commitment to sustainable development and quality education in Ghana. 

This initiative not only lights the way for other schools grappling with similar challenges but also underscores the powerful impact of alumni engagement in shaping a brighter future for the next generation.
