The agency stated that the sack was banned by the authority because it has cost the airlines huge losses and also damaged the airports’ conveyor belt system.It noted that passengers who wish to use Ghana Must Go to travel must have the same well package in carton or hardcover of rectangular size.
It was learned that the use of the sack-like bag has been attributed to the breakdown of many of the country’s airports’ conveyor belt systems and one that has put enormous costs on the shoulders of the airport authority.
