Virgin Atlantic now flying to Accra

Virgin Atlantic has started regular flights to Accra, the capital of Ghana. Operating three times a week, the airline uses an Airbus A340-300 aircraft with 240 seats onboard across Upper Class, Premium Economy and Economy.

Steve Ridgway, chief executive of Virgin Atlantic, commented:

"We are delighted that we are able to launch services to this fast growing and vibrant capital city with its historic links to Britain, thriving economy and growing oil and gas industry. Virgin Atlantic’s new services will bring much needed competition onto this route, breaking BA’s virtual monopoly. Nearly 200,000 people fly between London and Accra each year and our new services will give them more choice and better value for money.

Ghana is a beacon for economic success in West Africa, and with Africa showing greater economic resilience and growth than other global regions, we are thrilled that this will be our fifth route in Africa. We look forward to offering the best possible service to travellers between Ghana, the UK and the United States."
