Lufthansa to halt Ghana operations

Starr News is reporting that Brussels airlines will soon take over the operations of German airline, Lufthansa in Ghana.

According to sources, Lufthansa has notified government over its decision to pull out of the West African nation.

The decision follows Lufthansa’s acquisition of majority stake in Brussels Airlines which has forced Lufthansa to restructure its Africa operations.

In June 2009, the European Commission granted regulatory approval for Lufthansa to acquire an initial 45 per-cent stake in the parent company of Brussels Airlines.

Lufthansa simultaneously acquired an option to buy the remaining 55 per-cent stake in the Belgian carrier from 2011.

Per the restructuring agreement Lufthansa will now operate Brussels air’s Nairobi – Brussels route while Brussels air will take over Lufthansa’s Accra –Frankfurt route.

This comes few months after the national carrier of Italy, Alitalia suspended direct flights to Accra.
