PassionAir is a start-up airline based in Accra, Ghana which began operations in August 2018. The carrier’s quest for an innovative IT system led them to choose the Crane solutions suite from Turkish IT provider Hitit. PassionAir is Hitit’s third new airline partner this year and eighth collaboration in Africa. Strategically, Africa is one of the most important continents not only for Hitit, but also for Turkey. Therefore, Hitit is glad to serve the African market and export IT technology to Ghana. Hitit’s competitive technology has created its own popularity in Africa.
PassionAir is operating scheduled flights domestically from its Accra hub to Kumasi, Takoradi and Tamale with three Bombardier Q 400 aircraft. Hitit’s mobile App will have strategic values for PassionAir as more than 400 million people across West Africa now subscribe to mobile services, with the number expected to grow to 725 million by 2020. Ghana is one of Africa’s largest mobile markets, with about 34.57 million subscribers and 10.11 million active internet users.
