Accra: Over 4000 Ghanaian pilgrims who embarked on hajj this year are expected to start arriving in the country on July 3, 2024.

Nine flights have been booked to carry the Ghanaian pilgrims from Jeddah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to Tamale and Accra, respectively.

The Pilgrims Affairs Office of Ghana, run by the Ghana Hajj Board, released the schedule for travels today on social media.

Five Tamale-bound flights will start arriving on July 3 and end on July 6, while four Accra-bound flights will operate from July 6 to July 9.

This year’s hajj has been relatively difficult for pilgrims and hajj organisers due to the extreme heat, with temperatures rising as high as 51 degrees Celsius.

The situation led to cases of heatstroke, which caused the loss of 1,301 lives, as stated by Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah on Sunday.

The Ghana Hajj Board confirmed the deaths of some six Ghanaians, with some 13 others said to be embarking on pilgrimage with non-Hajj visas also feared dead.
