Tamale: Ghanaian Hajj pilgrims who participated in this year’s hajj have started returning home as the first flight from Saudi Arabia landed in Tamale on Monday.

The flight, which had about 400 pilgrims on board, is recorded to have arrived at 4:45 a.m.

More flights from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, are expected in Accra and Tamale in the coming days as the Ghana Hajj Board facilitates the return of 4,190 Ghanaian Muslims.

In all, 10 flights would be deployed for the task of transporting Hajj pilgrims from Saudi Arabia.

The departure of the last flight from Accra on Saturday, June 24, brought an end to the airlifting phase for hajj pilgrims in Ghana, where 10 flights were deployed to transport pilgrims from Tamale and Accra, respectively.

Ghanaian pilgrims joined counterparts from around the globe to participate in a five-day ritual in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

About two million Muslims participated in this hajj, a return to pre-COVID-19 figures.
