British Airways has reversed its decision to move Accra – London route from Heathrow to Gatwick.

According to Aviation Ghana, the decision comes on the back of lots of negotiations between the government and officials of British Airways.

British Airways had planned to commence the Accra – London route to Gatwick from this month.

This is not the first time British Airways has shortchanged travelers from Accra. A few years ago the airline moved the landing terminal to Terminal 5 at Heathrow and that was opposed strongly but to no avail.

The new move meant passengers on the Accra – London were going to land at Gatwick instead of Heathrow, and those travel from London to Accra were also going to go catch their flight at Gatwick.

The announcement met a huge backlash in Ghana, with the government of Ghana threatening to take a reciprocal action against British Airways if it goes ahead with its planned switch of the route from Heathrow Airport to Gatwick Airport.

In a letter to British Airways, the Aviation Ministry said it was not convinced by the explanation from British Airways.

But this new decision means travels from Accra to London on British Airways will land at Heathrow.
