This ends the monopoly currently being enjoyed by Africa World Airlines (AWA) the only domestic airline servicing the Accra-Kumasi-Accra; Accra-Takoradi-Accra; and Accra-Tamale-Accra routes since the since Starbow Airlines exited the market early this year.
PassionAir is a Ghanaian airline that started scheduled domestic operations in Ghana in August 2018.
Its vision is to create an exceptional travelling experience. The airline seeks to provide the Ghanaian aviation market with timely, safe and secure schedules between Accra and the main cities. It is PassionAir’s goal to be the airline of choice, providing competitive service within Ghana and the West African region as a whole.
Passion Air, has taken delivery of its first 78 seater aircraft, Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 which paves way for the airline to begin domestic operations.
The Commercial Manager, Passion Air, Ms Anita Khoury, speaking to the media, said “We will be expecting our second aircraft in a maximum of two weeks. The second aircraft when it comes in, then we will introduce Tamale and increase the Accra-Kumasi frequency too. When the third aircraft comes in, we will introduce Takoradi scheduled operation and further increase the frequency on Tamale.”
The new airline is expected to operate flights to Kumasi which will gradually be escalated to Tamale and Takoradi with an increased fleet of aircrafts.

AWA maintains a strong reputation as the most trusted domestic airline in Ghana. The introduction of PassionAir is good for the industry but will they be able to offer a healthy competition to AWA?
