Ethiopian Airlines has struck an agreement with the Ghanaian government to develop a new national carrier for the country, according to a report on FlightGlobal.

The publication reports that Ghanaian Aviation Minister, Joseph Adda and Ethiopian chief executive, Tewolde Gebremariam penned a memorandum of understanding in Addis Ababa today to set up a new airline sometime in the early part of 2019.

Ghana has been without a national carrier since Ghana International folded in 2010, but private Ghanaian carriers do operate.

Ethiopian Airlines is spreading its reach across the African continent as it continues to expand and has partnered to establish a number of joint venture carriers in the region, such as in Chad and Zambia.
