Guaranty Trust Bank (Ghana) Limited in a bid to provide a one-stop-shop for customers and the general public has reached an agreement with British Airways to collect payments for its e-ticket reservations.
The service, which has already started across the Bankï¿½s branches nationwide, thus creates a partnership of convenience for both GTBank and British Airways (BA) customers. This means that individuals, groups or businesses that make their British Airways bookings online or via telephone can now pay at any GTBank branch near them.
