South African Airways boosts United States-Ghana connection

South African Airways will increase its frequency on non-stop flights between Washington, DC-Dulles International Airport and Accra’s Kotoka International Airport to five days weekly starting April 2nd.

The carrier offers the only nonstop flight between Washington and Ghana and offers travellers convenient connections to over 100 cities across the United States and Canada through its Star Alliance partner, United Airlines.

“SAA continues to see growing demand for our non-stop Accra service and this increase in our frequency will give our business and leisure customers more options,” said Todd Neuman, SAA regional general manager for North America.

“Our service between Washington-Dulles to Accra has been a resounding success from its inception in 2015 and we are very pleased to further develop the route with the introduction of a fifth weekly flight.”


South African Airways’ flights to Accra will be available five days a week with continuing service to Johannesburg, South Africa, operating on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.

The increase of flights on the route will also serve to support the new code share partnership with Africa World Airlines by offering convenient connections between Accra and additional destinations in West Africa including; Lagos and Abuja, Nigeria; Monrovia, Liberia and Freetown, Sierra Leone.
