Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia visited the new Tamale International Airport to assess the progress of the construction.
In 2018, the government received financing to construct a new international airport in Tamale to meet the expanding local and international demand in the region.

Two international standard terminals, a 5-kilometer road, and other amenities have already been constructed at the airport.

A special multi-purpose terminal, commonly known as the Hajj Terminal, and the main domestic and international flight terminal are the two terminals.

The Hajj terminal has a waiting room, check-in and arrival counters, luggage control, ablution and prayer areas, as well as 200 parking spaces. The main terminal, which serves both domestic and international flights, is a significantly larger structure with modern airport facilities that spans 5,000 square meters.

The Tamale International Airport is 95 percent complete, and it is scheduled to be fully commissioned in August of this year.

Dr. Bawumia, who is in the northern portion of the country for a five-day working visit, was impressed with the facility’s progress.

Dr. Bawumia was optimistic that Pilgrims from the northern part of the country will be able to use the facility once the first batch of Hajj Pilgrims left Ghana from Tamale in the coming days.

Major works on other airports, such as the Kumasi International Airport and the Sunyani Airport (which has been completed), are also on track for commissioning this year, according to the Vice President, who added that the Akufo-Addo government has demonstrated a strong commitment to improving the country’s airports.
