Kumasi International Airport expansion project details
The expansion project at Kumasi International Airport is being carried out in two phases. A $29m rehabilitation project was carried out under phase one by December 2014. Aeronautical ground lighting systems were installed and the existing runway was rehabilitated under the project.
Ground-breaking for the €66.35m ($75.23m) second phase of the expansion project was held in November 2018. Phase two involves construction of a new passenger terminal and multiple service facilities at the airport. The new terminal will have the capacity to handle more than one million passengers a year upon its completion.
The existing runway will be extended from the current length of 1,981m to 2,300m, enabling the airport to accommodate wide-body aircraft such as Boeing 737-800.
