Launching the offer in Accra, Theresa Adade, Airtel’s Senior Manager in charge of International Roaming said “At Airtel, we recognise the annual Holy Pilgrimage is a special time in the lives of our Muslim brothers and sisters so we developed this special package for all customers on the pilgrimage to the Holy Land to ensure they stay in touch and connected to their friends and family throughout the Hajj period. This special package offers Pilgrims 200% discount on all calls to Ghana, free 100 minutes receiving calls as well as up to 10 minutes free calls to Ghana.
In addition to this, family and friends of Pilgrims can make up to 10 free calls to Saudi Arabia and enjoy amazing discounts on voice, data and SMS over a 30 day period. To subscribe, customers should simply recharge with GHC 50 or GHC 100, dial *151# and select the Hajj offer.
