Media reports recently said Virgin Atlantic Airways’ exit from Ghana is going to be made up for by British Airways. Virgin will stop selling plane tickets for travel to Ghana when it halts flight operations in September.
The reports said that British Airways has already started taking effective steps in this regard and intends to take full advantage of Virgin Atlantic Airways exit from Ghana.
From September onwards, BA will be the only airline in Ghana to offer direct services on Accra-London Heathrow route.
The decision to stop service by Virgin Atlantic has come as a great shock for those traveling between Ghana and the UK.
According to reports, BA will be increasing its flights schedules on Accra-London Heathrow route and would bring in more aircrafts to fill the vacuum created after Virgin Atlantic finally stops its services.
Media reports quoted industry players as saying that with BA being the only airline to ply on this route, it is feared that the airline’s monopoly of the route would result in the increase in fares.
