From October 27 this year, US bound travellers to and from Ghana are set to enjoy greater comfort and convenience, as Delta Air Lines flies its new state-of-the-art Airbus A330-900 neo on a nonstop service from Accra to New York-JFK.The brand-new A330-900neo aircraft will add nearly 1,000 more seats each week between Ghana and the U.S.

Speaking to journalists at a media roundtable in Accra, Delta’s Senior Vice President for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India, Matteo Curcio, said, Delta had worked to deliver an enhanced travel experience in Ghana and was looking forward to welcoming customers onboard the new aircraft come October.

 Customers, Matteo said can expect Delta’s best-in-class service and a uniquely premium onboard experience as they travel to and from the U.S.

Meanwhile, customers flying in Delta Premium Select will have more space to relax and stretch out, with a wider seat, deeper recline, an adjustable footrest and leg rest. Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin passengers benefit from comfortable, memory-foam seats. All travelers will enjoy ambient lighting for a restful flight, Wi-Fi for purchase, and seat-back screens featuring 1,000+ hours of Delta Studio entertainment. Delta collaborates with diverse suppliers worldwide for in-flight products such as artisan-crafted amenity kits and beverages like Thrive Farmers Tea. Delta continues to maintain its reputation for operational excellence. The airline has consistently been recognized for excellence in passenger experience, customer service, operational performance, and workplace culture. Recent achievements include winning Cirium’s Platinum Award for operational excellence for the third consecutive year, OAG’s most on-time airline, Air Transport World’s Airline of the Year 2024, and the Wall Street Journal’s top U.S. airline. 

Matteo used the opportunity to express his gratitude to Delta’s customers, the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority, and the government of Ghana for their continued partnership.  

Deputy Director-General, Technical at the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority, Mr Daniel Acquah welcomed the development but hoped the increased passenger throughput for the airline will translate into affordable air fares.
