British Airways launches second route to Ghana

BA’s new service will operate three times per week and complements the airline’s existing daily service between London Heathrow and Accra

British Airways has launched a new route between London Gatwick and Accra in Ghana as it looks to grow its presence in Africa.

BA’s new service will operate three times per week and complements the airline’s existing daily service between London Heathrow and the Ghanaian capital. The carrier also plans to add a fourth weekly Gatwick-Accra service from April 2024.

“With 11 direct flights, across two London gateways, we’re pleased to offer our Ghanaian customers a greater choice of products and prices,” Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ director of network and alliances, said.

“Overall, we’re doubling the number of seats between Accra and London, with 55% more capacity next summer versus 2019. We are always looking at routes and regions where there is potential for growth and Accra is one of those routes and Africa is one of those regions.”

BA’s arch-rival Virgin Atlantic previously flew from Heathrow to Accra between 2010 and 2013 before cancelling the service due to the high price of fuel in Ghana at the time.
