Posted 8 August 2016 · Add Comment

South African Airways (SAA) is celebrating the first year of its nonstop service from Washington, DC to Accra, Ghana.

The new route was launched on August 4, 2015 from Washington, DC - Dulles International Airport to Accra’s Kotoka International Airport and continues to offer the only nonstop service between the two cities.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the service, SAA is offering a special fare of $939.00* round-trip (restrictions apply) for travel from Washington, DC-Dulles to Accra for travel between August 11 and December 9, 2016.  Tickets for this special fare must be purchased by August 15, 2016.

“SAA’s new route between Washington, DC and Accra, Ghana has proven to be very popular with travelers from the large Ghanaian communities in the metropolitan Washington, DC and Baltimore area, and has served to deepen trade and investment for many corporations doing business on the African continent,” said Todd Neuman, executive vice president, the Americas for South African Airways. “We have received an overwhelming response from travelers over the past year to the new flights on this route and remain committed to strengthening Accra’s strategic position in the West African region by providing our affordable and legendary world-class service.”
