Ghana to Open New Domestic Airports at Ho and Wa

Two new domestic airports are set to open in Ghana, as part of the government's plan to ensure each of the country's ten regions has an airport, according to ch-aviation.

Ho Airport, in the Volta Region of Ghana's south east, is a brand new facility, while Wa, in the Upper West Region, has undergone extensive renovations. Work on the $25 million Ho Airport commenced in September 2015 and, when completed,it will have a runway of 1900 metres and a terminal building capable of handling 150,000 passengers a year. Wa airport have undergone renovation with the addition of a terminal building, a new runway and perimeter fence, at a cost of $1.5 million. The renovated airport will be temporary until a new permanent location can be found. Funded by the Ghana Airports Company Limited, through a $120 million loan from the African Development Bank (AfDB), the new airports are expected to drive business and tourism as well as Hajj operations. According to the ch-aviation capacity module, Ghana's current weekly domestic capacity is just over 18,000 seats on three routes: Accra - Kumasi (44%); Accra - Tamale (35%); and, Accra - Takoradi (21%).
