There is positive news in the Ghana aviation sector as Pan-African carrier ASKY Airlines is set to increase its frequencies into the country to an impressive 28 flights per week, meaning 4 flights per day from Sunday May 1, 2022.
Currently, ASKY has 19 flights to Ghana weekly and is rated as the foreign airline with most frequencies to the country.
The increase from 19 to 28 is an achievement worth writing home about and an obvious indication the airline is offering quality service that meets clients’ expectation.
The company started operations in Ghana in December 2009 with Atlas GSA Ghana as its General Sales Agents (GSA) when the airline had just 2 flights per week.
With professional services and a strategic marketing and sales approach, an increase in demand yielded a growth from 2 flights weekly to its current 19 per week. Now a further increase in demand has led to the announced increase of 4 flights daily and 28 weekly.
The development is most certainly a positive growth with multi-dimensional economic benefits for the country.
ASKY has also announced flights from Lomé, Togo to Beijing, China starting in summer this year.
This will be a unique service from West and Central Africa directly to China using an ultra- modern aircraft-the B787 Dreamliner.
It is expected to be done in cooperation with its strategic partner– Ethiopian Airlines.
“This falls within our continuous efforts and promise to work permanently to provide better transportation through seamless connections to travelers across this region,” ASKY noted in a statement.
ASKY currently operates a fleet of nine aircraft: four (4) Boeing 737-800s and five (5) Boeing 737-700s, serving twenty-four (24) cities in twenty-one (21) countries within Africa.
From May, ASKY will increase its fleet from 9 to 11 made up of four (4) Boeing 737-700s and seven (7) Boeing 737-800s aircrafts.
ASKY’s focus is to develop a strong intra-Africa network that foster regional development, tourism, economic growth and regional integration as a major economic catalyst within the continent with its long-term goal of a sustainable business focused on profitability.
