Domestic Flights in the country grounded to a halt on Saturday as Ghana Civil Aviation Authority workers implemented their threat of a strike action.
The strike that was supposed to have happened from Friday was suspended due to a plea by management of the authority for a final meeting to dissuade the workers from embarking on the strike action. But clearly the workers were not convinced by the authority’s attempt to assure them that their demands will be met.
According to the staff, the situation is making it difficult for the Civil Aviation Authority to expand its operations and logistics in order to render quality services to stakeholders in the aviation industry.
Checks on Saturday revealed that scores of passengers had been left stranded as staff of GCAA in charge of safety on the runway, were on strike.
Clueless about what was going on, some of the passengers had no choice than to return home, while others demanded to get an explanation to what was going on.
However, work resumed later in the afternoon after the Chief-of-Staff Julius Debrah intervened.
