Aviance Ghana Welcomes United Airlines To Accra

Blog

Aviance Ghana, one of Ghana’s top aviation service providers last week welcomed United Airlines to Kotoka international airport, as it launched the first flight of its new service to Accra. The carrier is now operating a thrice-weekly service to the West African city from Dulles International Airport. 

The airline will operate three flights per week to Accra, offering passengers more traveling options to the US. 

United Airlines, which is the 3rd largest airline in the world as measured by fleet size and a number of routes, will compete with Delta on the Accra- New York JFK route. 

The Chicago-based carrier followed Delta Air Lines with its earlier arrival at Accra, from New York, the day before. Several other international powerhouses also serve the city. For instance, Qatar Airways, Air France, Turkish Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Air Cote d Ivoire, British Airways, Emirates, Ethiopian Airlines, KLM, Kenya Airways, TAP Air Portugal, and EgyptAir, all fly to the airport. 

Altogether, Accra is a strong hub in Africa. Along with Africa World Airlines’ presence at the airport, over three million passengers from across the globe pass through. Therefore, it’s no surprise that United is keen to expand. 

 The US Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie S. Sullivan said the United States will further deepen its bilateral relationship with Ghana. The U.S. Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie S. Sullivan said the start of the United Airlines service will also promote trade relations between the two countries. 

Aviance, which has also been chosen as the ground handler for United Airlines, says it is very delighted to service the airline. 

Mark Kamis, Managing Director of Aviance told Aviation Ghana that “we were very lucky that we have been handed the ground handling for United. We had the business back in 2015 when United was first here. So for Aviance, we are very excited to be handling them again.” 

The landing of the Dreamline 787 was welcomed by the US Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie S. Sullivan, the Minister of Transport, MD of the Ghana Airport Company among other dignitaries. 

Big Tour operators like Continent Tours in West Africa and Palace Travel in the USA can take advantage of this, as there are more flight options.
