Air Service in Ghana

All international flights land at Kotoka International Airport in Accra (ACC). All major international carriers have service to Ghana at least once per week.

Domestic flights from Accra serve Kumasi, Tamale, Takoradi and Sunyani, but charter services are available to many other locations.

Airfare to Ghana

Shopping for airfare online is easy. One convenient consolidator for international flights is Vayama. Flights booked via this site are reliable and inexpensive. However they may not be best from your area, so use the prices obtained from Vayama as a baseline for comparing prices from other sites as well as with the airline directly.

Another excellent site is Yapta, where you can set fare alerts if your travel dates can be flexible. Easy Track Ghana is always happy to work with your flexible schedules.

During your Flight to Ghana

Be well rested for your flight. Wear loose comfortable clothing. Bring some chewing gum or something to chew during takeoff and landing to help your ears when the plane is pressurizing. Exercise before and during flight (flexing your muscles while in your seat is one example). Drink plenty of fluids, but not coffee, tea or alcohol.

Everyone has their own remedy for jet lag, and I am no exception. My personal favorite is 'No Jet Lag' tablets, available in travel shops worldwide. Endorsed by the New Zealand National Rugby team, these are herbal tablets that you chew every 2 hours or so while in transit. I would not have been inclined to try these except for an elderly couple I was sitting beside on a long-haul flight. They were so enthusiastic about No Jet Lag and they made me promise to try them on my next trip. Now I share their same enthusiasm for this product.

Arrival at Kotoka Airport in Accra

After your flight lands, you will queue at Immigration for inspection of your passport. Those who sit nearest the front and rear exit of the airplane get through this queue quickly, while the rest of the plane waits in a long queue.

Regardless of your position in the Immigration queue, everyone waits at the baggage claim area. There may be delay to retrieve your bags, but usually not any worse than your average airport. Get a pushcart for your bags - it is free.

For your convenience, there is a money change kiosk in the arrival hall, just before the baggage claim. The rates are decent, and it makes sense to change enough to get you through a couple days while waiting for your luggage.

After passing customs and exiting the arrival hall, there may be many people in a giant throng outside. Most are not meeting anyone in particular, but are just hoping to meetsomeone as they exit. Everywhere people will be offering to help you, hoping for something good to come their way.

It can be mayhem, but the Easy Track guides are easy to locate in our bright Kente shirts.

If you do take a taxi, do not get into the taxi until you have negotiated with the driver for the rate to your destination. Otherwise a ridiculous amount will be requested from you upon delivery to your destination.
