Starbow Airline has announced a second daily flight on its Accra-Tamale-Accra route starting from Monday, February 4, 2013.
The late afternoon flight will leave Accra at 16:15 and from Tamale at 17:45 on Mondays, Tuesdays Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
A statement released to the GNA on Friday said this addition to the Starbow Timetable would make it possible for travellers from both Accra and Tamale to conduct day-return business between the two cities, removing the need to prolong visits and incur costly over-night stays.
It would also provide customers in Tamale the opportunity to travel to Accra in the evening to conveniently connect onto international services from Accra.
Mr. Andy Smith, Head of Commercial at Starbow commented: “Once again Starbow has listened to its customers and is pleased to be able to provide them an enhanced service using our BAE146 Jet and it’s reduced flight times between the two cities that will provide benefit to the business community by offering them a significant improvement in cost efficiency over existing services and enable a full day's business in ether Tamale or Accra with a return in the same day”.
To introduce this second flight to Tamale, Starbow is offering passengers an introductory Day Return Fare at an incredible GHC199 (including taxes). Starbow continues to fly every morning from Accra to Tamale at 07:15 and from Tamale to Accra at 08:45.
