SAAJOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE South African Airways (SAA) is celebrating 20 years of flying to Ghana, a key performer in the airline’s West Africa route network.

It flies eight times a week to Accra from the initial three flights at inception of the route.

“High service standards and attention to customer service delivery has resulted in growing frequent flyers and high load factors. Our customers enjoy Africa’s warmest hospitality on board and the reliability of our flight schedules,” says Gloria Mensah, SAA Country Manager in Ghana.

As a further investment in the route, SAA introduced flights between Accra and Washington DC in August 2015, after being granted traffic rights making SAA the first African carrier to offer a direct service between Accra and Washington in the United States.

From Washington, SAA also offers convenient connections to and from over 50 markets in the US and Canada through its airline partners United Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Virgin America.

SAA believes the operations to the West African country cements South Africa and Ghana’s strong history dating back to 1994 when diplomatic relations between the two countries were established.

Since then, the two countries have signed 19 bilateral agreements and Memoranda of Understanding.

Ghana is a strategic partner for South Africa and is her second largest trading partner in the West African region.
