With Kotoka International Airport open to international travel, the local aviation industry is bouncing back to life.
Qatar Airways launched its services to Kotoka and now America’s United Airlines has also announced its plans to revive its direct flights from Washington D.C to Kotoka.
This is part of United Airlines’ plan to expand its global route network, the company has announced new nonstop services to parts of Africa including Ghana, India and Hawaii.
When the route becomes operational in 2021, United Airlines will become the only U.S. carrier serving Accra nonstop from Washington, D.C. with three weekly flights.
This was revealed when the Executive Chairman of United Airlines, Mr. Oscar Munoz, called on Ghana’s Ambassador to the United States, H.E. Dr. Barfuor Adjei-Barwuah, to officially inform him about the company’s plan.
Recounting the past, the Ambassador raised concerns about the standard of aircraft that will be used for the route, the cost of tickets and the quality of services that will be offered to Ghanaians.
“Whereas we are grateful for your decision to expand services to Ghana, we are also concerned about the type of services that will be rendered to our citizens. We are counting on United to offer premium customer services and fair prices at all times. We expect a relationship where our citizens are provided with exceptional services and Ghanaian workers employed by United Airlines are treated fairly,” the Ghanaian Ambassador is quoted to have expressed.
Reacting to the Ambassador’s concerns, Mr. Munoz assured him of his company’s readiness to treat Ghanaians fairly and with respect when it comes to prices and the quality of services.
Y’all ready for this direct American flight to the country’s capital?
