Low-cost airline Ryanair on Wednesday said it plans to bid for Cyprus Airways before a deadline in the next 24-hours.


Ryanair’s chief marketing officer, Kenny Jacobs, told the BBC that a “very positive meeting” was held with the Cypriot government and the airline last week.

Ryanair is among fifteen companies that have submitted non-binding expressions of interest in the loss-making airline, which is under the control of the Cypriot government.

The Cypriot government owns more than 90 per cent of Cyprus Airways, which has struggled to survive against cheaper competitors.

According to the newspaper Cyprus Mail, the Communication and Works Ministry will evaluate all business plans. Companies that make the shortlist will then be asked to file binding proposals.

The airline’s new owner should be announced by the beginning of October.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
