Delta Airlines opens new Sky Deck
A release issued to the Ghana News Agency on Friday in Accra, indicated that the 1,710-square-foot outdoor terrace would provide customers a distinctive space with unprecedented runway views at the world’s busiest airport.

“The Sky Deck takes that concept one step further, providing a unique space where customers can step outside of the terminal, enjoy truly unique views and experience everything else the Delta Sky Club has to offer. It is yet another way we are being innovative and differentiating ourselves from the competition”, it added.
