South African Airways to Increase Washington DC - Ghana Service
South African Airways will increase the frequency on nonstop flights between Washington DC-Dulles International Airport and Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Ghana, to five days weekly starting April 2. This service is the only nonstop flight between Washington and Ghana and it offers travelers connections to and from over 100 cities across the US and Canada through South African Airways’ Star Alliance partner, United Airlines, via Washington, DC-Dulles. The flights will operate every day except Friday and Sunday. SAA’s increase of flights on the route will also support the new code share partnership with Africa World Airlines by offering connections between Accra and additional destinations in West Africa, including: Lagos and Abuja, Nigeria; Monrovia, Liberia; and Freetown, Sierra Leone. In addition, SAA will continue to operate flights between Washington D.C.-Dulles and Dakar, Senegal and onward to Johannesburg twice weekly, providing service on the only wide-body aircraft flying nonstop between the US and Senegal.
