Ghana to sanction British Airways over bed bugs
Ghana’s Aviation Minister Cecelia Dapaah
London, Jan. 19, 2018 (AltAfrika)-Ghana’s Aviation Minister Cecelia Dapaah has warned British Airways (BA) it could face sanctions, after reports of bed bugs on some of the airline’s flights into the country.
She is alarmed at the reports of bed bugs in some of the British Airways flight which has become a great source of worry to some Ghanaian passengers.
Cecelia Dapaah demanded an explanation and reassurance from the airline that such an incident will never happen again.
A British newspaper reported this week that a BA flight to Accra was grounded at London’s Heathrow Airport for four hours, after the insects were found crawling on the seats.
British Airways, which has a monopoly on direct flights between the UK and Ghana, has issued a statement saying such incidents were extremely rare, and a specialist team had taken immediate steps to resolve the issue.
