Africa World Airlines resumes flight operation
Ghana’s leading carrier, Africa World Airlines (AWA), is set to resume flight operations in the country following the lifting of the lockdown imposed by the government necessitated by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The government had suspended all forms of economic activities in the country to contain the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic. AWA in a statement said it is resuming operations with limited domestic scheduled flight service with effect from Tuesday 21APR20. “AWA will initially operate one daily roundtrip flight each from Accra to Kumasi and Tamale. Additional destinations and frequencies will be announced in due course.“
It said the flights will be operated with the highest safety protocols “which will include mandatory thermal screening and hand sanitization for all passengers and staff. Furthermore, all passengers will be required to wear their own nose covering (either a face mask or a scarf/cloth covering) during the flight, and will be seated so that no passenger other than a child below 12 years is placed in an adjacent seat. Passengers unable to comply with these requirements will be denied travel.”
