A Ghanaian Passenger holding a genuine UK Tourist Visa had the shock of his life when he was disgraced and humiliated by British Airways officials at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra after purchasing air ticket for GHC18,000.
The passenger, who gave his name as Frank Amartey, was about to board his flight to the UK on the night of 26th December 2022 around 10pm, after going through Immigration checks and all other check-in procedures.
Mr. Amartey completed all procedures and was getting ready to board the British Airways flight when an announcement was made at the Boarding Gate calling out his name to attend to an emergency.
He complied with the announcement to get the details of that so-called emergency only to be informed by British Airways officials that he cannot be allowed to travel to the UK.
No concrete explanation whatsoever was given when Mr. Frank Amartey attempted further probing into the incident.
Instead, he was given a very empty and vague letter with no proper information being addressed to his name.
Attempts to contact the High Commission officials have proven futile with loads of emails and phone calls going unresponsive.
Some investigations conducted by AMAGHANA ONLINE revealed that this is not even the first time the British Airways has done this at the Kotoka Airport in Accra.
“We’ve had about three other cases where some Ghanaians were also thrown off the flight. I think this is the new trend of preventing people from travelling to the UK and sadly many people are not yet aware of this. That is what they do now,” some Ghana Immigration Officials (names withheld) told AMAGHANA ONLINE news.
Take a look at the refusal to carry letter issued by British Airways here:
This triggered total confusion and drama on the night at the Kotoka Airport because the affected passenger proved that his Tourist Visa was genuine and clean.
When contacted, the Ghana Immigration officials also confirmed that indeed the visa was genuine.
Mr. Frank Amartey has threatened to take on British Airways because they have caused him too much damage and annihilation in public.
Feeling so distressed, this is what he had to say:
“Why should you wait for me to buy air ticket for GHC18,000 and then prevent and humiliate me in this manner?
I got the Tourist Visa right here from the UK Embassy at Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra. I got the visa and even had 3 more weeks ahead of the trip without any feedback to backtrack.
I don’t carry any Fraud Visa around so why should British Airways do this to me,” he lamented.
