Ghana’s leading carrier, Africa World Airlines (AWA), through the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has repatriated 130 Brazilians stranded in seven countries across West Africa.

According to embraercommercialaviation.com, the Brazilians had no way to get home due to transportation networks disruption and cross-border travel made difficult because of the global pandemic.

The rescue plan was the joint effort of seven embassies and one consulate-general and coordinated by the Embassy of Brazil in Ghana.

On July 21, Brazilian nationals in Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Nigeria, and Senegal traveled by land and air to Accra.

Many of the evacuees flew on Africa World Airlines ERJ145s to Accra where they connected to a special Azul Airlines charter flight to Campinas.

Azul A330 did the transatlantic flight from Accra Ghana to Brazil.

“We are so glad that we were able to do our small part in order to bring our Brazilian brothers and sisters back home!” said AWA.
