SAA Adds Fifth Nonstop Flight from Washington, D.C. to Ghana

by Maria Lisella

As of April 2, 2019, South African Airways will offer five weekly nonstop flights between Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. and Accra, Ghana

SAA’s 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. In addition, SAA will continue to operate flights between Washington D.C.-Dulles and Dakar, Senegal and onwards to Johannesburg, two days per week, providing service on the only wide-body aircraft flying nonstop between the U.S. and Senegal.

Through its Star Alliance partner, United Airlines, passengers can access the new service from more than 100 U.S. cities.

“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,”  said Todd Neuman, SAA’s regional general manager for North America.
