Over 170 stranded Germany-based Ghanaians airlifted from Accra

Over 170 Ghanaians with residence in Germany have been lifted from the Kotoka International Airport to the European country.

The 177 persons left on board an Ethiopian flight and are expected to join a connecting flight to Germany in Addis Ababa.

The Ghanaians were left stranded in the West African country for the past three months due to COVID-19.

Ghana’s Ambassador to Germany, H.E Gina Blay confirmed the travel arrangement in a tweet.

As part of measures to minimise the spread of the coronavirus, Ghana closed its borders – air, land and sea – in mid-March 2020.

The arrangement to evacuate the Ghanaians resident in Germany was done at the behest of the German Embassy in Accra. The ambassador Christoph Retzlaff expressed his delight at the smooth operation at the Kotoka International Airport.
