Bad weather forced Abidjan landing – PassionAir

The management of PassionAir has explained that it was forced to divert one of its recent flights from landing in Accra or Kumasi due to bad weather conditions.

“Unable to land in Kumasi or return to Accra, a decision was made to proceed to the planned alternate airport, Félix Houphouët Boigny International Airport in Côte d’Ivoire (Abidjan), where the weather permitted a safe landing”, a statement issued by the airline said.

Read the full statement below:

On 17 April 2021, PassionAir flight OP152 departed from Accra at 17:45 for Kumasi.

Unfortunately, due to deteriorating weather conditions at the destination airport, the flight could not land.

Unable to land in Kumasi or return to Accra, a decision was made to proceed to the planned alternate airport, Félix Houphouët Boigny International Airport in Côte d’Ivoire (Abidjan), where the weather permitted a safe landing.

Passengers were provided with refreshment on the ground and the flight departed Abidjan at 11:20 pm 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.

All PassionAir flights operate with the highest safety standards, conforming with strict, laid down GCAA regulations.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

However, this diversion was necessary, as the safety of our passengers, crew and equipment, is paramount.
