Kumasi Airport To Be Completed In May This Year

President Akufo-Addo has declared that the redevelopment of Kumasi International Airport is set to be finished and completely operationalized by May this year.

The President was speaking during the State of the Nations Address in Parliament on Tuesday, February 27, 2024.

He said the airport, which is about 98% completely, will act as a fundamental central point for regional connectivity, tourism, and trade in the Ashanti Region and beyond.

As per Nana Akufo-Addo, government’s intention to complete the airport reflects its determination to position the country as a leader in aviation excellence on the African continent.

“Mr. Speaker, we are committed to concluding the external debt restructuring process as soon as possible, so we move past the crisis. This will enable us to complete substantially projects that have been constrained due to financial challenges. In the meantime, some of the priority projects have been transferred onto the GOG budget within the same fiscal space to ensure their completion”.

“This will enable the Kumasi International Airport, which is some ninetyeight (98%) complete, to be completed by May. Other projects like the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) Maternity Block in Kumasi, the Takoradi Interchange, the Obetsebi-Lamptey Interchange in Accra, the University of Environment and Sustainable Development Project at Bunso in the Eastern Region, phase two of the construction of roads in Tamale, and the construction of the eighty-four-kilometre (84km) railway line between Tema and Akosombo, would also be completed.”

The airport has been named after the late Asante King Asantehene Otumfou Nana Agyeman Prempeh I.
