Ghana’s largest airline Africa World Airlines (AWA) has increased the number of flights from Accra to Nigeria’s city of Lagos.
The increase comes after the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority announced an Updated Schedule for International flights with effect from Friday 02 October 2020. The NCAA is yet to revise the passenger limit from each aircraft that still stands at a maximum of 200 passengers per flight.
AWA said in a statement: “Following the increase in flight quota announced by Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, Africa World Airlines will increase our flights between Accra and Lagos effective from 06 October 2020.
AWA will now offer 11 weekly flights between West Africa’s two largest economic centers, with a choice of both morning and evening departures on Monday/Thursday/Friday/Sunday and single flights on Tuesday/Wednesday/Saturday.”
Sean Mendis, Chief Operations Officer of AWA commented, “AWA is delighted to have been awarded additional flight frequencies to Lagos. As the largest operator of international flights to Nigeria before the pandemic, we are confident that passengers traveling within the region will put their faith in us again when they need to travel from Lagos or Abuja to Accra and beyond. Our “Fly Safe, Fly Confident!” program ensures that all our flights operate under industry leading safety standards which are so important at present.”
Regionally AWA resumed flights across West Africa: “Our convenient schedules also offer swift and hassle-free connections between Lagos and Freetown, Monrovia or Abidjan via our hub at Accra’s state of the art Terminal 3.”
On the domestic front AWA now offers up to 8 daily flights between Accra and Kumasi on weekends.
