Mr. Ofori is the Founder of TheAfricanDream LLC firm; an information and communication consultancy on African affairs based in the United States (US). On September 1, 2016, Mr. Ofori embarked on a-two-week business trip to Ghana in West Africa courtesy aboard SAA.
TheAfricanDream LLC Founder recounts Ghana-trip
In a conversation with Mr. Ofori, he said the trip was to enable him to visit with family and meet with some business partners of his firm, TheAfricanDream LLC.
“My South African Airways experience was a very pleasant one, it was my first trip outside the US aboard an SAA flight and I chose them not only because they were a direct flight to Ghana from the Washington DC area, but I had heard of their legendary in-flight experience.”
Founder of TheAfricanDream LLC told this writer that George Bright-Abu; Editor of the Afrikan Post Newspaper, a US-based publication covering Diaspora Africans recommended SAA: “George spoke highly of them and was kind enough to put me in touch with Deborah Droke, the SAA Director of Sales Development in the Mid-Atlantic who is also in charge of International Sales & Marketing.”
The South African Airways experience
According to Mr. Ofori, Deborah was very nice and went out of her way to ensure his Ghana flight on SAA was a very personal and memorable one. South African Airways started their direct flights to Ghana from Dulles airport in the Washington DC area on August 3, 2015, with the Airbus A340-600.
Some members of the Ghanaian and other African communities in the US this writer spoke to indicated their appreciation of SAA for playing a great role in helping bridge the air transportation gap between travelers, investors and tourists in the US, Ghana and across Africa with their SA #209 direct flights.
“The almost 11hr flight without a transit stop was just perfect for me and my family, the friendly airline crew and entertainment were amazing, the warm South African courtesy was always felt in first, business and economy classes of the plane. When I arrived in Ghana I needed less than 24hr rest to allow me to prepare to meet with some old friends and then jump into business as I was not heavily jet-lagged.” — Oral Ofori
While in Ghana, Oral Ofori briefly met with Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare – Ghana’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Rama Brew — ace Ghanaian actress and jazz musician and Gyedu Blay-Ambolley — Legendary Ghanaian musician. The others were Andrew Asare-Boffo — CEO of Aspects Consult, Yaw Ampofo-Ankrah — veteran sports journalist and President of Ghana Beach Soccer Association, and Ahmed Abdul-Rashed — Administrative Manager of Syphics Studios.
The Founder of TheAfricanDream LLC also interacted with Ameyaw Debrah, the award winning Ghanaian blogger and musicians Danny Beatz and AJ Dahottest. “these were rather brief but very fruitful meetings. I know most of these individuals will soon be in the US to finish the discussions we started in Ghana, which is why I will be recommending SAA to them” Mr. Ofori said in conclusion.
