The official inauguration by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II will pave way for further testing of equipment at the new terminal building ahead of the full relocation of all domestic passenger service from the old terminal building to the new one in June.

The Kumasi International Airport, located at the heart of Ghana’s second most populated city, Kumasi, has undergone a total makeover within the past half-decade.

The new ultra-modern terminal building, which is capable of handling over 800,000 passengers per year, has modern passenger processing installations in place and is equipped with navigation aids. Jet A1 ( aviation fuel) is also available at the facility.

The Kumasi International Airport has a runway length of 1,994m capable of supporting the operations on A319s, A320s, and Boeing 737s.

I further runway lengthening is planned to extend the existing one to 2,300m plus to enable it to accommodate other larger aircraft.

The Asantehene, speaking during a recent call on him by the management and board members of the GACL, noted that the operationalisation of the airport will boost economic activity in the region.
