Ethiopia Airlines has prohibited the use of matted woven bags popularly known as “Ghana-Must-Go” on their flights.

According to the foreign airline, the bags which are quite popular among Nigerians and other African countries, especially Ghana, were barred due to the frequent damage to conveyor belts at various airports, resulting in significant costs by the airlines to fix.

Persecondnews reports that many travelers opt for “Ghana-Must-Go” bags due to their lightweight, spaciousness, and capacity to take in a lot of valuables.

The bags became quite popular during the 1983 Ghana-Must-Go saga under the then President of Nigeria, Shehu Shagari’s regime.

In a statement on their X (formerly Twitter) handle announcing the ban to its passengers, Ethiopian Airlines wrote: “We would like to inform you of a restriction regarding the usage of irregularly shaped packages on Ethiopian Airlines flights. It is strictly prohibited to bring “Ghana must go” bags unless they are adequately packed in a carton or hardcover rectangular container.

“This restriction has been implemented due to the frequent occurrence of damages to conveyor belts at various airports, resulting in significant costs incurred by the airlines involved.

“We kindly request your cooperation in complying with this rule to ensure the smooth operation of our flights and to minimize any potential disruptions caused by damaged conveyor belts.

“We appreciate your understanding and continued support in adhering to these guidelines. Thank you for choosing Ethiopian Airlines.”
