Source: - Some Domestic Airlines are worried the high cost of aviation fuel in the country could soon run down their business.

One of such carriers, Africa World Airlines, has revealed that it currently fuels its planes in Nigeria due to the high cost of fuel in Ghana.
Head of Human Resource at the Airlines, Christabel Amegayibor speaking with Starr News warned that the failure to address the issue could cripple the domestic aviation industry.

“Aviation fuel in Ghana is much more expensive than it is in the whole sub-region. So we go to Lagos and tanker our fuel from there…that is because Ghana’s aviation fuel is a lot higher”.

She further called for an immediate action in considering the reduction of the 17.5 percent VAT on Domestic fares which she said has reduced patronage of domestic flights.
