Kotoka Airport upgrade ready in 3 years

The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Airports Company Limited, Mrs. Doreen Owusu Fianko, has said the expansion works at the Kotoka International Airport will be completed in two-and-a- half years and are intended to provide modern facilities to upgrade the airport.

She said new parking lots were being constructed to take in more aircraft, and aerobridges would be constructed and provided with new baggage handling equipment.

The expansion and upgrading has become necessary as the air traffic flow into the country has increased by over 200 per cent over the last 10 years.

“We are seriously working on expansion and regeneration of the airport to be able to enhance facilities and handle such new generation aircraft. Within two and a half years we should be seeing a brand new state of the art airport,” Mrs Fianko told the Daily Graphic at the weekend.

This was in an interview shortly after Ethiopian Airlines new aircraft, the much-awaited Boeing 787 Dreamliner, touted the world’s most technologically advanced commercial aircraft, touched down at the airport at about 11 a.m at the weekend.
