Transportation to Accra City Center from Airport

Ghana's capital and largest city, Accra is also the political, economic and cultural center of the country.

The airport that hosts about 3 million passengers per year is not very big. However, it is possible to find almost anything here that travelers may need before and after the flight.

The city also has direct flights to cities such as London, Beirut, Amsterdam, Barcelona, ​​Lisbon and New York. In the city, the period from May to July and from August to October is mostly rainy.
