Emirates airline has suspended all its flights from and to Accra from the 21st of March 2020 to the 20th of May 2020 in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
The government of Ghana had written to airline companies to stop flying travellers from countries that have recorded over 200 cases of COVID-19 into Ghana.
Ghana confirmed its 7th case of the virus yesterday [17th March 2020].
The Dubai-based carrier had previously announced that a total of 35 routes would be temporarily cancelled from Tuesday [yesterday] as a result of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
This includes a range of destinations across Asia, the Middle East, Europe and America.
In a statement posted on its website, the airline said it will closely monitor developments in Accra, Ghana, to reinstate its flights to that destination if it becomes necessary.
The firm also advised customers to contact it to change flight destinations at no extra fees.
