Following the reopening of air borders to allow for the resumption of international flights in Ghana, the move coincides with other international airlines resuming operations this week.
This comes on the back the Coronavirus induced closures and restrictions earlier placed in March this year to curtail the spread of the virus.
While the traveling public entering Ghana are required to pay an amount of US$150 for COVID-19 testing on arrival, some airline operators have raised questions about the cost.
So far, about 200 passengers on three separate flights have successfully undergone COVID-19 tests at the Upper Arrival section of Ghana’s main airport, the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).
This was confirmed by the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) via a post on Facebook on Tuesday following an announcement by President Akufo-Addo to allow for the reopening of Ghana’s air borders effective September 1, 2020.
