The new Kumasi Airport, which was inaugurated on Friday, May 10, 2024, is generating a lot of interest from major international airlines, with at least four currently discussing potential direct flights to the Ashanti Regional capital.

The airlines, based in the Middle East, Africa and Europe, who asked not to be named, have conducted extensive commercial viability of operating direct flights to the Kumasi International Airport, given the limitations of the current runway, and have followed up with formal enquiries to the Ministry of Transport, the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and the Ghana Airports Company Limited respectively.

The Kumasi International Airport has a runway length of 1,981m capable of supporting the operations on A319s, A320s, and Boeing 737s.

The runway expansion project is to be completed by the last quarter of this year.| Asky becomes first airline to land at Prempeh I Int. Airport in Kumasi after official inauguration
