Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr.

launching flights to the capital of Ghana, one of the fastest
growing economies in the region famed for its local hospitality
and highly sought after agricultural exports. We first announced
our intention to launch flights to Accra in January 2020 and while
the pandemic has slightly delayed these plans, it has not stopped
us from fulfilling our commitment to passengers in Ghana and
around the world.
“With the strong Ghanaian diaspora especially in
Europe, the UK and U.S. we are thankful to the Ghanaian Government
for their support in helping us to launch these flights providing
an opportunity to reunite family and friends with their loved
ones. We look forward to working closely with our partners in
Ghana to steadily grow this route and support the recovery of
tourism and trade in the region.”
