Best Airline of the Year

Africa World Airlines is a privately owned airline incorporated on the 15th of November 2010. It commenced its first revenue flight on the 21st of September 2012. The airline has consistently seen growth in both frequencies of flights and route network making it profitable. This is a great achievement for an airline that has been operating for only 7 years. Africa World Airlines became a full member of IATA in 2017 and is also IOSA certified. As part of our growth as an airline, we have signed partnerships with various International Airlines such as South African Airways, Emirates, Brussels Airlines, ASKY Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines. By doing this our aim of connecting more passengers will be achieved.

Our commitment to our customers is evident in the awards that AWA has been humbled to receive through the years, including multiple “Domestic Airline of the Year”, “Best Airline in West Africa”, and “Best Passenger Experience” awards as chosen by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIMG), Ghana Tourism Board, National Aviation Awards, and others. In 2019, AWA also received an award from Embraer in recognition of reliability in data quality, and were inducted into the CIMG Hall of Fame after being voted as “Best Domestic Airline” for 5 consecutive years.

Africa World Airlines operates in five cities in Ghana; namely Accra, Kumasi, Tamale and Takoradi. AWA also serves Lagos and Abuja in Nigeria, Monrovia in Liberia as well as Freetown in Sierra Leone with the dream of connecting Africa with the rest of the World.

The airline is on course with its vision to becoming the “leading airline in Africa, delivering a world class service”.
