Research have indicated that about 80% of people fail.

Both fares include taxes and other charges, and the airline is also offering special discounts to other worldwide destinations.

“Our passengers choose us because we offer good value,” says Moran Birger, British Airways’ Commercial Manager for Ghana.

“We thought, ‘what better way would there be to start the year than to demonstrate this,’especially coming so closely after a holiday of even greater giving”’ he adds.

British Airways is the only airline offering a First class service to Ghana and with benefits such as the comfort of a personal onboard suite, traditional afternoon tea, formal dining on white linen with fine bone china, mood lighting in the cabin, and access to the exquisite Concorde Room airport lounge, the service is popular among passengers.

Birger says the airline aims to build on 2014 this year: “Even though Ghana has experienced some difficulties in the past couple of years as a nation, the prospects are still very high, particularly in the area of small and medium business. One of the things we are looking forward to doing this year is to strengthen our relationships in these sectors.”

Ghana’s President John Dramani Mahama has high hopes for year 2015. In his New Year’s speech to Ghanaians, President Mahama said that the coming year holds a wide expanse of possibilities. He called on the people of Ghana to enter the New Year 2015 without any cynicism or sense of limitation.

‘Let us not enter 2015 with any cynicism or sense of limitation. Let us choose to fill the days ahead of us with hope and not despair. When we look ahead let us see all that we can achieve and let us work individually and collectively in the interest of progress,” H.E. John Dramani Mahama

John Mahama also pointed out that while the rest of the world hesitated before to offer their help, Ghana immediately took a bold stand against fear and lead the fight to contain the epidemic of Ebola, which has claimed lots lives in Africans.

“It is this type of courage, determination and generous display of humanity that has always defined us as a people, as a nation – not only on an international stage but also right here, on our own soil,” Mahama
