President Akuffo-Addo satisfied with work on Kumasi Airport

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed his satisfaction with the progress of work done so far on the phase two of the Kumasi International Airport.

He further charged the Ministry of Transport as well as the Contractor to ensure that the October 2022 deadline for completion is met.

On June 6, 2018, upon cutting the sod for the commencement of work on Phase Two of the Kumasi Airport Project, President Akuffo-Addo said that “the expansion of the airport was a critical part of his government’s vision to expand the frontiers of the aviation industry in the country, and to realise the dream of making Ghana an aviation hub in West Africa.”

The President was told during the inspection that the terminal building was 88 per cent complete, the road network 93percent complete, the Apron 89 per cent complete, with the air traffic control and rescue and firefighting services 53 per cent complete.

President Akufo-Addo visited the site of the construction on Friday, October 1, 2021, as part of his four-day working visit to the Ashanti Region.

The project in its entirety will cost €124.9 million, with financing from Santander, Deutsche Bank, and UKEF.
