Instead of Kumasi Airport, PassionAir flight OP152 landed in Abidjan.
PassionAir, a Ghanaian domestic airline, reports that their flight OP152, which took off from Accra for Kumasi on April 17, 2021, landed at the Félix Houphout-Boigny International Airport due to deteriorating weather conditions at the Kumasi airport.
The diversion was required, according to the company, because the weather allowed a secure landing in Abidjan, and “the safety of our passengers, crew, and equipment is paramount.”
In a statement obtained by buzzgh.com, the firm said,
“Passengers were provided with refreshments on the ground and the flight departed Abidjan at 11.20pm when the weather had improved en-route to Accra.
“Hotel arrangements were made for passengers who required it, while others opted to spend the night in their own homes.
The statement read further, “All PassionAir flights operate with the highest safety standards, conforming with strict, laid down GCAA regulations.”
