The Volta Development Forum (VDF), lead regional advocacy organization, issued a statement ahead of the ongoing Volta Fair in Ho, calling on domestic airlines to consider the event as a threshold.
Mr Daniel Agboka Dzegede, Executive Director of the Forum, spoke to the GNA after the Passion Air move and conveyed the appreciation of the people of the region.
“The people of Volta are elated about the good news”, he said, calling for daily flights to be considered.
“A lot of people have promised to board the flights and the airlines should rest assured,” the Executive Director added and said the leadership of the VDF would join the maiden flight to whip up support and patronage, and would also entreat investors to help develop airport vicinity.
He also promised that the VDF would complement the efforts towards making the Ho Airport one of the best in the country.
“The VDF will consistently propagate the good news about the Ho Airport, and airlines must never entertain any fear. Theirs is to regularly provide the flights,” he assured.
