Great news for all my West African travel enthusiasts. Emirates and Africa World Airlines (AWA) have announced a one-way interline agreement.
The Ghanaian airline seems to be expanding it’s clientele. Just a couple of months ago Africa World Airline partnered with South African Airways and today, AWA has gone into another agreement with Emirates.
The agreement allows Emirates customers to connect onto selected routes of Africa World Airlines’ network, opening up new African destinations for Emirates customers from May 2019.
Passengers on Emirates’ network can now benefit from greater connectivity to West Africa, especially those travelling from popular inbound markets such as Dubai, China, India and Australia as they can now connect from Accra onto AWA flights to Kumasi, Tamale and Sekondi-Takoradi in Ghana and regional destinations Monrovia in Liberia and Freetown in Sierra Leone.
Emirates passengers could choose from seven weekly flights from Dubai to Accra until June 2, this year, when Emirates Airlines will increase services on the route to 11 weekly flights.
The agreement with AWA will further extend Emirates’ connectivity from Accra with up to 10 flights daily to Kumasi, four flights daily each to Tamale and Takoradi and six weekly flights to Monrovia and Freetown.
“Africa World Airlines is proud to partner with Emirates in order to connect passengers through our hub at the new Terminal 3 in Accra. Customers will enjoy seamless connections at the premier gateway to the West African region as a result of this new agreement” – said Sean Mendis (Chief Operations Officer for Africa World Airlines)
