Dubai carrier Emirates will operate a one-off Airbus A380 flight to Ghana’s capital Accra in October.

The October 2 service is to celebrate the opening of the airport’s new Terminal 3 and will test the A380 facilities and infrastructure.

EK787 will leave arrive at 11:35am and spend six hours on the ground before returning at 5:50pm.

“The launch of Terminal 3 is a milestone in Ghana’s aviation history and we support every effort to facilitate greater trade links, grow tourism and boost cargo to the region,” said Emirates SVP of commercial operaitons for Africa Orhan Abbas.

The airline first began flying to Ghana from Dubai in January 2004 and has carried 1.6 million passengers on the now daily route.
