Some domestic airline operators have decided to resume flight operations ahead of a directive by the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), that airlines can only begin operation from December 15, 2015.
The industry regulator in a statement said that “the poor visibility due to the harmattan has led to flight cancelation, suspension and delays; a development which is likely to affect domestic airlines financially.
“…the weather may improve for flight operations after December 15, 2015,” the statement added.
But Africa World Airlines (AWA) has revealed that it will resume flight operations on Friday December 11, 2015.
AWA temporarily suspended operations when the Harmattan reduced visibility and made flying impossible.

According to the airline company the decision to resume operations is because the Harmattan has started tapering off.
AWA will resume flights on its Accra-Kumasi route first. Flights on the Accra-Tamale route will follow suit at a later date.
AWA cancelled flights AW102/3 (KUMASI)/AW106/7 (KUMASI), AW160/6 (TAMALE) on December 9, due to “poor visibility at destinations (KMS and TML).”
It said passengers' tickets for the cancelled flights "will be valid on any domestic route at no extra charge for travel before 28 Feb 2016."
