The now revamped South African Airways (SAA) relaunched services on the Johannesburg – Accra route on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, 18 months after the airline halted its operations.
This flight service is however operated by A320 aircraft instead of A330-300. The A330-300 is scheduled to operate this route from 1st Dec 2021.
The South African legacy carrier will resume its Johannesburg – Maputo flights on 1st Dec 2021 at earliest.
Before trouble ensued the airline, SAA offered flight schedules between Johannesburg and Ghana as well as connected the West African country to North America with a flight schedule to Washington Dulles Airport in D.C.
Its growing presence in West Africa continued with strategic cooperation and a partnership with Africa World Airlines (AWA) enabling the South Africa legacy carrier to offer more seamless travel for customers from across West Africa with connections to/from Abuja and Lagos in Nigeria; to/from Monrovia in Liberia; and to/from Freetown in Sierra Leone.
