In furtherance of the Bank’s commitment to promote tourism in the country, Guaranty Trust Bank (Ghana) Ltd, (GTBank) is partnering the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) for the 2019 Paragliding Festival, scheduled for 19th -22nd April, to give patrons an enthralling flying experience over the Easter holidays in Kwahu.
The annual event, the pinnacle of the Easter celebrations in Kwahu, has grown in popularity over the last 14 years – attracting hundreds of patrons from Ghana and the diaspora every year. This year’s event is expected to attract some five hundred (500) patrons during the Easter weekend.
As part of the partnership and reinforcement of the Bank’s cashless drive, GTBank is digitizing payments for the festival, leveraging its industry leading digital platforms Myghpay and *737# to enable patrons purchase tickets from the comfort of their homes and offices at a discount.
Explaining the Bank’s sponsorship of the festival, Richard Ahiagble, Group Head of Corporate Affairs at GTBank said “we are excited to partner the Ghana Tourism Authority for the 2019 Easter Paragliding Festival.

Our partnership with the GTA speaks to our commitment in this regard and is part of a bigger partnership for the Year of Return”.
He continued “we are offering a 10% discount on all tickets purchased through the Myghpay and *737# platforms.
