Kotoka International Airport is a significant hub, with international flights from North America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, as well as domestic flights to Kumasi, Tamale, and Takoradi and regional flights to practically every West African country.

Delta Air Lines conducts four times weekly direct flights between New York-JFK and Atlanta in the United States. All major North, South, and Latin American cities, as well as the Caribbean, may be reached from there. United Airlines provides nonstop overnight service from Washington-Dulles International Airport on a daily basis.

Arik Air is a low-cost airline that serves Accra and other African destinations. Emirates and Virgin Nigeria both have operations in the nation (should you wish to fly from Lagos). Turkish Airlines started flights on July 15, 2010 and operates on a daily basis.

As of April 2010, Virgin Atlantic Airways runs three times weekly direct flights from London’s Heathrow Airport on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays, with intentions for additional daily flights. British Airways also offers daily flights to London Heathrow.

KLM also has a daily flight to Amsterdam, from where it can connect to practically every European location. TAP Portugal provides a direct flight to Lisbon, Lufthansa has a daily flight to and from Frankfurt, and Alitalia has frequent flights to Milan; however, incoming flights to Accra must first stop in Lagos.

Transport from the airport

There is a designated taxi stand. If you want a regulated fare, be sure you locate it. Otherwise, be prepared for a very pricey journey. On the plus side, the pricey/illegal car touts normally put you in a better vehicle with a professional driver, and you avoid any possible taxi confusion—you pick! or, better yet, go out to the main road and hail a cab for the correct fare.


Despite the government’s focus of rail network repair, just one line is now operational. Regional commuter trains run many times a day from the adjacent industrial city of Tema, which has little tourist appeal.
