South African Airways will launch a new non-stop service between Washington, D.C.-Dulles International Airport and Accra’s Kotoka International Airport on August 3, 2015. With the introduction of this new flight, SAA will be providing the only non-stop flight between Washington D.C. and Ghana, as well as the only Skytrax 4-Star-rated airline service and world-class quality from North America to the entire West Africa region.

South African Airways’ flights to Accra will be available four days a week, with continuing service to Johannesburg, South Africa, operating on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. SAA will reduce its current flights from Washington D.C.-Dulles to Dakar, Senegal and onwards to Johannesburg, to three days a week, operating on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

To celebrate the launch of this new route, South African Airways offers special introductory fares of $899* round-trip (restrictions apply), available for purchase from May 27 to June 26, 2015, for travel between August 3 and October 31, 2015.

Tickets for the new service to Accra are now available for sale. For reservations and information, customers should visit or contact South African Airways’ North America Reservations Center at 1-(800) 722-9675, or their professional travel consultant.
