About Ghana

Flights to Ghana from UK Airports

Most flights to Ghana from the UK take you in to the capital city, Accra. There are direct flights to Ghana from London Heathrow with British Airways, which take about six hours 30 minutes. But most flights connect through other airports across Europe with Air France, KLM, Brussels Airlines, TAP Portugal and Vueling. When you fly to Ghana on a connecting flight, you’ll be travelling for between nine and 13 hours, depending on your connection.

h3>Flights to Kotoka International

The majority of international flights to Ghana land at Kotoka International Airport in Accra, the capital city. From Accra, you can arrange transport not only into the Greater Accra region but also to destinations throughout the country.

Take the bus or taxi out to man-made Lake Volta, the culturally-rich Ashanti region and the attractions of the north. Or make your way to the city of Accra itself, which is only six miles from the airport. Taxis will take you into town, or check with your hotel to see if it offers a shuttle bus service.

The capital city of Accra is the starting point for many visitors, but beyond this intense and vibrant place, there is so much to explore. It’s no wonder that Ghana is becoming ever more popular with visitors from around the world.

Flights to Sekondi-Takoradi

The vast majority of flights into Sekondi-Takoradi Airport are from Accra, but a connecting flight via the capital might be a good option if you’re heading to the western coast and resort towns such as Cape Coast, Elmina and Busua, which are all a short drive from the airport.

Beyond Accra, there is much to discover and explore in Ghana. The western coast combines lovely beaches for swimming and other water sports with fascinating sites of cultural and historical importance, including the UNESCO-listed forts and castles – a reminder of the European colonial period and its impact not only on Ghana but the region as a whole.

Ghana also has a wealth of natural attractions to explore, from the rainforests to the grasslands and a number of parks, reserves and sanctuaries, which show off the wildlife and plantlife of the country. An appealing mix of natural landscapes and human intervention is Lake Volta, the largest man-made lake in the world and one of the must-see destinations on any trip to Ghana.

There are numerous hotel options in Ghana within easy access of both Kotoka International Airport in Accra and Sekondi-Takoradi Airport near the resort towns along the western coast. Whether you are searching for a beach hotel or a luxury retreat, a family-friendly hotel or a business hotel to get some work done, the range of hotels in Ghana means you are sure to find the perfect place for your stay.
