The Ministry of Youth and Sports has received a correspondence from the Ghana Embassy in Equatorial Guinea on their findings on accommodation, transportation and possible feeding costs for the Ghanaian officials and supporters who will be travelling to Equatorial Guinea for the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) from 17th January to February, 2015.
Following the letter from our mission in Equatorial Guinea on their findings, the Ministry wishes to inform prospective Football officials and fans as follows:
On flight arrangements in Malabo, there are two main Airlines from Accra to Malabo i.e. Punto Azul Airlines and Ceiba airlines. On internal flight arrangements, there are three airlines i.e. Punto Azul Airlines, Ceiba Airlines and Cronos Airlines which fly from Malabo to Bata for approximately 55,000 CFA (US$110) one way and 110,000 CFA (US$220) return ticket. Ceiba Airlines also flies directly from Malabo to Mongomoyen Airport for approximately 65,000 CFA (US$130) one way.
Traveling by road from Mongomoyen Airport to Mongomo city is approximately 20 minutes. Travelling by road from Bata to Mongomo city is two hours approximately.
The Ministry wishes to advice all prospective Football Officials and supporters to make arrangements before the scheduled date considering that there are few hotels and private residences on rent in Mongomo with a high demand due to the influx of people during the football period.
As it is the practice, the quoted prices may shoot up as a result of such high demand, therefore it is advisable for one to consider making arrangements ahead of time to avoid any inconveniences.
