Ghana’s fast-growing regional airline, Africa World Airlines (AWA), is to operate daily flights between Accra and both Freetown and Monrovia starting September 5, 2019.
The increase in the current frequency from 6 flights to the two West African countries to a daily service is part of the indigenous airline’s quest to strengthen its regional presence in West Africa.
AWA’s Head of Commercial, Richard Kyereh, told AviationGhana : “AWA’s partnership with SAA has helped both carriers to jointly offer more options to travelers from West Africa. Our home base at Accra’s new Terminal 3 has proven to be a very popular connecting point and gateway to the entire region.”
AWA also operates daily flights between Accra and Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos. It also serves the Accra-Abuja route and is expected to open up more routes in the coming months.
Coupled with its strong domestic operations, the airline’s strategic partnership with Ethiopian Airlines, South Africa Airways and Emirates now makes it possible for passenger in Ghana to book a flights from any of the domestic destinations it serves–Tamale, Kumasi, Takoradi– to any destination serviced by its partner airlines without having to check in again at the Kotoka International Airport.
