Ghana’s Kotoka International Airport expansion project starts

27 June 2014

The Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) has commenced work on terminal two arrival hall expansion project at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).

The airport has been facing some challenges, with the increased number of passengers that has exceeded the capacity of the airport infrastructure in recent years. The project is expected to add an additional 5,148 m2 floor areas to the existing 6,031 m2.

The US$21.4m project is being funded through the internally generated funds of the GACL. The contract was awarded to Amandi Holdings Limited.

KIA would see some major improvements in the coming months, as works are being done on various parts of the airport, with plans to build a new international departure terminal, to reduce the pressure on the existing one.
