The significant development aims to enhance passenger experience and bolster the airport’s capacity.

In preparation for the seamless transition from the old terminal to the new facility, Ghana Airports Company Limited, in collaboration with stakeholders, will undertake a rigorous series of simulations.

The new Terminal boasts a range of state-of-the-art features designed to accommodate up to 800,000 passengers annually. It includes amenities such as two passenger boarding bridges, a Presidential lounge, three additional lounges, four boarding gates, self-service check-in kiosks, immigration booths, commercial retail areas, currency declaration offices, and a medical facility, among others. The enhancements are expected to elevate the airport’s service capabilities significantly.

GACL reiterated its commitment to providing world-class facilities and services, positioning Kumasi’s Prempeh I International Airport as a premier aviation hub in West Africa.

The operationalization of the new Terminal marks a milestone in Ghana’s aviation sector, promising improved efficiency and passenger comfort in line with international standards.

As the July 1, 2024, opening date approaches, anticipation is high among stakeholders and travelers alike, heralding a new era for air travel in Kumasi and beyond.
