Domestic airline operators are to resume flights from Accra to various destinations, startng this Friday, [May 1, 2020].
It follows the completion of a disinfection exercise carried out at the various airports in Accra, Tamale, Kumasi and Takoradi.
A statement from the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to Citi Business News said the Authority, together with the Ghana Airports Company Limited and the Ghana Health Service have instituted measures to ensure smooth operations.
International and domestic flights were grounded when the President closed the country’s borders by invoking the Restriction of movement Act, from March 30 to April 20, 2020, as part of efforts to curtail the spread of the coronavirus in Ghana.
The GCAA however says it will review laid down protocols where necessary and introduce improved procedures to enhance the measures to fight the coronavirus and its effect on the aviation sector.
Meanwhile, domestic airline operators; Passion Air and Africa World Airlines have since announced flight schedules to and from Accra, Kumasi and Tamale effective May 1, 2020.
Per the schedule, they will operate at least twelve domestic flights from Friday [May 1, 2020] to Sunday [May 3, 2020].
The flights are to begin from 10:30 am through to 5 o’clock in the evening for the first three days.
