The official inauguration of the facility, which has gone through a huge transformation over the past decade, 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 at the end of June, 2024.

Transport Minister, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, and the Managing Director of the Ghana Airport Company Limited Yvonne N. A. Opare, and other dignitaries are expected to join President Akufo-Addo and Otumfuo for the inauguration today.


Work on Phase Two (2) of the Kumasi Airport Project began in 2018. It included the construction of a new Terminal Building to handle one million passengers per annum, two boarding bridges, a road network, perimeter fence, a substation and parking lot among others. The cost of the expansion work was estimated at £66,350,000.

Phase three of the Kumasi Airport Expansion Project involves the extension of the existing runway pavement from 1,981 meters to 2,320 meters, construction of new taxi link and two Apron Parking Stands, an Air Traffic Control Building, and a Fire Station among others. The cost for this phase is estimated at £58,900,000. President inaugurates £66million ‘new’ Kumasi Airport today
