The Airport Council International (ACI) has ranked the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) as the best in West Africa.
The rankings, which were done in the first quarter of 2019, also rated KIA the fourth-best in Africa, an improvement from the previous year where it was ranked sixth.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who disclosed this at an ongoing annual general assembly of the Airport Council said the government is strictly adhering to quality standards to position KIA as the preferred in the world.
According to the president, “Ghana’s aviation industry has seen considerable growth in recent years, made possible by the continuous creation of a stable political, social and economic climate. We have liberalised the regulatory framework within which the industry operates.”
“In addition to this, we have abolished the 17.5 per cent VAT on domestic airfares which has led to almost a doubling of domestic passenger traffic,” he added.
The president also disclosed that international passenger numbers have grown by 6.7 per cent as of September 2019 compared to 2018.
