Default ghana to uganda

hello, i am just wondering if i there are any airlines that have
direct flights that i can take from accra to kampala or even nairobi.
secondly is there a web site that is searchable for these flights. i
made the mistake of trying Expedia and Priceline. Expedia doesn't
even recognize Accra as an airport. pathetic.

As far as I know (I tried to fly from Accra to Entebbe in 2002) there
are no direct flights. I flew South African Airways via Johannesburg.

SAA no longer flies directly between Jhb and Entebbe, but goes via
Nairobi. If you can get a flight from Accra to Nairobi, it will be
easy to get to Kampala from there.

BTW, I think that Accra and Kampala are probably the two most pleasant
cities in Africa.

Regards,
Marc

Hi Veronica,
I`ve just checked out Kenya Airways as I remembered they would be
starting to fly to West Africa, so that is a possibility. They have a
website but I`m including a section of an article I found on
google.com. I`ve been from Heathrow to Nairobi with them and they were
fine.

Twice-weekly flight to Accra, Ghana in West Africa

Kenya Airways will be operating direct flights to the Ghanaian capital
from Nairobi every Monday and Saturday using the new 737-700. The
flights will depart Nairobi at 16.55 on Mondays and 8.30 on Saturdays.
Kenya Airways has expanded its route network with a view to improving
its market position in Africa and worldwide. Network development has
further been enhanced through cooperation with other African airlines
like Air Tanzania, Air Malawi and Air Botswana. Other destinations in
West Africa are Douala, Lagos, Yaounde and Abidjan.

''The Most Promising African Airline''
Kenya Airways was voted the Most Promising African Airline by the
Aviation and Allied Business Update, the premier aviation industry
journal in Nigeria. The award was given to Kenya Airways for its
resilience and consistency in growth and operational efficiency. During
the award ceremony held in Abuja, Nigeria, it was termed ''the fastest
growing airline in Africa and a success story of privatization''. Issues
highlighted included its modern fleet, impressive financial performance,
route network, staff training and information technology.

Ethiopian used to fly direct from Accra to Nairobi; I took that flight
back in 1996.
