The Upper West Regional Airport is set to commence commercial operations next month with Africa World Airlines (AWA), the leading air carrier in Ghana, set to begin Accra-Wa flight in October.
The Airport was recently allocated the identifier code “WZA” by International Air Transport Association (IATA), signifying its readiness for scheduled flight services.
The flights will run three times weekly on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings from Accra with a short stop in Tamale.
Promotional fares begin at GH99 each way between Tamale and Wa, and GHS299 each way between Accra to Wa. Convenient seamless connections are available from Kumasi and Takoradi via AWA’s hub in Accra.
“The decision to launch this service is part of AWA’s commitment to providing safe and affordable air transportation to all Ghanaians. This new airport in the Upper West will help boost existing business travel to the region, as well as create new opportunities for tourists exploring Mole National Park and its surroundings,” said AWA’s Head of Commercial, Richard Kyereh.
