Delta Air Lines, the leading US carrier to Ghana, celebrates 16 years of service in Ghana’s aviation industry. The milestone – celebrated by Airport operations, GSA staff and customers – demonstrates Delta’s continuous commitment to Ghana since it launched operations in December 2006.
“We are excited to be celebrating 16 years of service to the people of Ghana, and we are grateful to government authorities, partners, staff and our cherished customers for their support,” said Jimmy Eichelgruen, Delta’s Regional sales manager for Africa. He added that: “Delta remains dedicated to the Ghanaian market, as it continues to invest in social and developmental partnerships in the health and education sector to support women, girls and youth in the country.”
Delta’s partnership with Breast Care International (BCI) has provided breast cancer education to improve knowledge, change attitudes and promote the importance of early breast cancer detection while offering free screening to women in communities across the country.
Over 65,000 women have been screened, with many suspected cases found. Since 2005, Delta has been supporting Breast Cancer Awareness charities globally, raised over US$24million dollars, and funded over 85 different research projects. Delta’s and BCI’s resolve and dedicated service every year seek to make meaningful impacts in the way cancer is viewed in our community.
In 2011, Delta established the Business School Internship programme for Ghanaian business students. The scheme has provided students with opportunities to learn how a global company operates, build on their skills and support future career opportunities.
In addition, Delta partners and supports Junior Achievement (JA) Africa to advance business and STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) education among young people across Africa; delivering hands-on immersive learning in work, financial health, entrepreneurship, sustainability, STEM, economics, citizenship and ethics, among others.
In November, Delta introduced its Premium Select cabin experience into the Ghanaian market, featuring locally-inspired dining, premium hand-crafted amenities and more dedicated service touchpoints. The service, he indicated, is in line with Delta’s unwavering commitment to offering travellers varieties and options to choose from, while connecting the world and making air travel an experience.
