Virgin suspends flights to Accra


Virgin Atlantic has announced it will be suspending its operations between London Heathrow and Accra, Ghana, from 22 September. The last flight from Accra to London will depart on 23 September.

Exceptionally high fuel costs in Ghana, a challenging wider economic environment and an inability to operate morning arrivals from Accra due to scarcity of slots at Heathrow, have all contributed to the decision to withdraw the service.

“These are still challenging times for the airline industry and we have to deploy our aircraft to routes with the right level of demand to be financially viable,” says Edmond Rose, Director of Airline Planning for Virgin Atlantic. Passengers can continue to book for travel prior to those days throughout the coming months.
