Delta Air lines has received approval for local boarding and traffic rights for its service between Accra's Kotoko International Airport and Roberts International Airport in Monrovia, Liberia, starting this month.

The new Delta service offers customers the opportunity to fly non-stop between Monrovia and Accra providing increased travel choice for travelers across West Africa, the company said in a statement.

"The fact that passengers will also be able to fly between Monrovia and Accra only, also provides an important transport link helping to facilitate business and commerce between Liberia and Ghana," commented Bobby Bryan, Delta's Commercial Manager for West and East Africa.
