With this development, the difficulties northern passengers encounter in getting to Accra for foreign flights will hopefully be addressed.

According to the Ghana Airport Company, the new airport will serve about 800,000 flights per year, which means it will have a big impact on traffic within the region.

In a notable move, the airport is slated to be renamed Nana Agyeman Prempeh I International Airport, honoring a significant person in the region’s history
