Air-Namibia commences direct flights from Accra, Ghana
Air Namibia-Ghana, has commenced direct flights from Accra to Johannesburg, South Africa and Windhoek, Namibia.
The flights, the first of which commenced on Saturday, November 21, 2009, would fly five times a week.
Dedicating a town office for Air Namibia in Accra on Sunday, Mr Joseph Shipepe, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Airline, said a study conducted by the airline revealed great potential in the Accra-Johannesburg route.
"We look at it not only in terms of business but also, re-visiting the long standing friendship between Ghana and Namibia," he said.
He said flights also served as a means of integrating the West African and South African regions.
