Head of commercial for Ghana’s leading airline, Richard Kyere of Ghana’s leading airline, Africa World Airlines, has appealed to the Ministry of Aviation to extend the working hours of the Tamale Airport to operate more flights in the region.

Richard Kyere made this appeal at the inaugural ceremony for the AWA’s first commercial flight into the newly commissioned airport in Wa in the Upper West Region.

AWA’s Wa flights which will run three times in a week, specifically Tuesday, Thursday and Sundays will make short stops at the Tamale Airport.

Convenient seamless connections are however available to Wa from Kumasi and Takoradi respectively.

Speaking the Ceremony, Richard Kyere, asked that the closing hours for the Tamale airport be reviewed to allow AWA operate more flights in Tamale.

He also pleaded with the Aviation Ministry to mediate with the government of Côte d’Ivoire to facilitate the operation permit the airline seeks in order to operate in Côte d’Ivoire.

The beauty of the ceremony was heightened when the pilot who made the historic journey to Wa, Victor Pul, a native of the Region stormed the ceremonial grounds to greet the chiefs and people of Wa.

According to Pul, he hopes the maiden flight and the fact that he is a native of the region will encourage the youth to see the aviation industry as an industry meant for everyone including indigenes of Upper West.
