Daily flights out of Accra
Air France offers daily service between Accra and its hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, France, with stops in Lomé and Ouagadougou.
The airline, which commenced the new schedule on March 25, 2018 said the strategic decision to operate daily flight between Paris and Accra, with stops in the two neighbouring West Africa countries, is to offer the travelling public more travelling options on the route.
The airline, a subsidiary of the Air France–KLM Group and a founding member of the SkyTeam global airline alliance, has been serving the Accra market for decades.
