The Kumasi International Airport has undergone rehabilitation to become an International Airport. Work to upgrade the Kumasi Airport to international standard was scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015.
The project, valued at about $300 million, will see the construction of a new two-storey ultra-modern terminal, restaurants, shopping and parking areas, and a ring road around the airport.
Currently, upgrading work on the existing runway and some related works are in progress. A new runway will be added in due course, after which flights can take off and land in the night. Currently an Instrument Landing System (ILS) to aid pilots for take off and landing has been inaugurated.
