Ethiopian Airline bans use of ‘Ghana must go’ bags

Ethiopian Airline Nigeria has placed a restriction on the use of the popular checkered plastic travelling bag known as ‘Ghana must go’, on its planes.

According to the airline, the ‘Ghana must go’ bags can only be used on its planes if they are packed in a cartoon or any rectangular container with a hardcover.

In a statement sighted by GhanaWeb, Ethiopian Airline explained that the decision was taken to restrict the usage of the bags because they cost a lot of money by damaging conveyor belts at several airports.

“We would like to inform you of a restriction regarding the usage of irregularly shaped packages on Ethiopian Airlines flights. It is strictly prohibited to bring “Ghana must go” bags unless they are adequately packed in a carton or hardcover rectangular container.

“This restriction has been implemented due to the frequent occurrence of damages to conveyor belts at various airports, resulting in significant costs incurred by the airlines involved,” part of the statement read.

It added, “We kindly request your cooperation in complying with this rule to ensure the smooth operation of our flights and to minimize any potential disruptions caused by damaged conveyor belts”.
