New agreement will connect passengers to West African destinations

Dubai, U.A.E, 16 April, 2019:   Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, and Africa World Airlines (AWA), the Ghanaian airline headquartered in Accra, have announced a one-way interline agreement whereby Emirates customers can connect onto selected routes of Africa World Airlines’ network, opening up new African destinations for Emirates customers from May 2019.

“The agreement between Emirates and Africa World Airlines underpins our commitment to provide greater connectivity across West Africa. This partnership will allow us to further extend West Africa via the selected domestic and regional routes of Africa World Airlines,” said Orhan Abbas, Emirates Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Africa.

'Africa World Airlines is proud to partner with Emirates in order to connect passengers through our hub at the new Terminal 3 in Accra. Customers will enjoy seamless connections at the premier gateway to the West African region as a result of this new agreement,' said Sean Mendis, Chief Operations Officer for Africa World Airlines.

Passengers on Emirates’ network can now benefit from greater connectivity to West Africa, especially those travelling from popular inbound markets such as Dubai, China, India and Australia who can now connect from Accra onto AWA flights to Kumasi, Tamale and Sekondi-Takoradi in Ghana; and regional destinations Monrovia in Liberia and Freetown in Sierra Leone.

Emirates passengers can choose from seven weekly flights from Dubai to Accra until 2nd of June, 2019, when Emirates will increase services on the route to 11 weekly flights. The agreement with AWA will further extend Emirates’ connectivity from Accra with up to ten flights daily to Kumasi, four flights daily each to Tamale and Takoradi and six weekly flights to Monrovia and Freetown.

Between Dubai and Accra, Emirates operates the Boeing 777-300ER, one of the most technologically advanced and efficient aircraft in the world. The aircraft’s advanced wing design, efficient engine and light structure makes more efficient use of fuel. This means significantly less emissions than similar aircraft, making it one of the most 'green' long range commercial aircraft types. Passengers in all cabin classes can enjoy Emirates’ award-winning entertainment on ice – the airline’s inflight entertainment system that offers 4,000 channels of in-flight entertainment. Customers will also enjoy complimentary beverages and regionally inspired meals, as well as the warm hospitality of the airline’s multi-cultural cabin crew. Passengers can also stay connected to family and friends during the flight with up to 20 MB of complementary Wi-Fi.

Africa World Airlines (AWA) is a Ghanaian airline based in Accra. AWA started operations in 2012 and now operates a fleet of 8 all-jet aircraft across 8 destinations throughout Ghana, Nigeria, Liberia and Sierra Leone, with services to Cote D’Ivoire planned to commence in May 2019. AWA is the only IATA member airline registered in Ghana, and maintains IOSA certification, the global gold standard for aviation safety.
