Domestic airline operator, Passion Air, has distributed 1000 packs of food, drinks and water to the needy and underprivileged on the streets of Accra.
The move was part of the company’s activities to celebrate Easter with the vulnerable in society.
During the exercise, persons including beggars, mentally derailed, street children and those with disability were feted on the streets of Airport, Elwak Sports Stadium, Kanda Highway, Ridge, Accra Central, Osu Cemetery and the Kwame Nkrumah Circle.
Mr Samuel A. Razak Tachie, Sales and Marketing Manager of PassionAir, said Easter was a season of giving, hence, the company’s resolve to give back to society as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility.
He said the move was the first of its kind by the company, but gave the assurance that it was going to be an annual exercise.
Safety is paramount but excellent customer service is our hallmark, Mr Tachie said, asking the public to patronize Passion Air’s services.
Currently, Passion Air plights the Accra-Kumasi-Accra routes and Accra-Tamale-Accra routes.
Among the products the company offers are “It Takes Two,” a product that allows customers to purchase a ticket and get 25 per cent discount on his or her next flight and “Bringing People Together,” where four people purchase a ticket together and receive 10 per cent discount.
Passion Air also has ‘connecting people,’ where it gives international passengers a 10 percent discount on their domestic travels and 10 kilos excess baggage allowance.
The Airline, Mr Tachie said, flies pets to their destinations in its “Passion Air loves Pets” service.
