SAA celebrates 1st US-Ghana route anniversary

JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) -SOUTH African Airways (SAA) is celebrating the first year of its nonstop service connecting capital cities of Ghana and United States.

The route linking Accra and Washington DC respectively was launched on August 4 last year.

It serves Washington, DC – Dulles International Airport to Accra’s Kotoka International Airport.

Todd Neuman, executive vice president, the Americas for South African Airways, says the route has proven popular with travelers from the large Ghanaian communities in the metropolitan Washington and Baltimore area.

He says it has served to deepen trade and investment for many corporations doing business on the African continent.

“We have received an overwhelming response from travelers over the past year to the new flights on this route and remain committed to strengthening Accra’s strategic position in the West African region by providing our affordable and legendary world-class service.”

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the service, SAA is offering a special fare of $939 round-trip (restrictions apply) for travel from Washington to Accra between August 11 and December 9.
