Ghanaian travellers will have more options for flight times and locations from October 29, with additional planes flying into London Gatwick. The airline currently operates daily flights between Accra and London Heathrow Terminal 5.

On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, the new flights will depart Accra at 21.20 and arrive at London Gatwick at 04.00. The Accra-bound service will leave at noon and arrive in the capital at 18:35.

Moran Birger, British Airways’ Head of Sales for Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia, said: “Restoring our Africa network after the pandemic gave us an opportunity to carefully consider the routes and regions where there was potential for growth. Accra was one of those routes, and Africa is one of those regions.”

He continued by saying that Gatwick offers a different entry point from London for expatriates from Ghana and tourists from the UK, adding that premium clients and Gold and Silver Executive Club members can ease their way into vacations or visits to relatives in the recently renovated lounges.

The new services also increase cargo capacity on the route, allowing Ghanaian exporters to quickly deliver perishables and other items to market via IAG Cargo, the cargo section of British Airways’ parent company, International Airlines Group.
