Domestic airlines in Ghana have come a long way over the past decade. As our cities expand, the need for domestic flights has been on the rise. Ghana now has official airports in Accra, Kumasi, Paga, Sekondi-Takoradi, Ho, Obuasi, Sunyani, Tamale, Wa and Yendi. Out of all these airports, only the Kotoka International Airport, in Accra, has the capacity to receive international flights. However, all other airports are suitable for domestic flights. Since flight is the safest way to travel, we thought it nice to provide this list of functional domestic airlines in Ghana as of December 2020. Ghana currently has three functional domestic flight operators for passenger flights.
