Accra Airport Reviews

Kotoka International Airport (IATA: ACC, ICAO: DGAA) in Accra, Ghana, is the country’s premier international airport and has the capacity for large aircraft such as the Boeing 747-8. The airport is operated by Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL), which has its offices on the airport property.

GACL was established as a result of the decoupling of the existing Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) in line with the modern trends in the aviation industry. The airport company was registered in January 2006 and commenced trading on 1 January 2007 tasked with the responsibility for planning, developing, managing and maintaining all airports and aerodromes in Ghana namely Kotoka International Airport (KIA) and the regional airports at Kumasi, Tamale, Sunyani as well as airstrips. In 2012, the airport saw 2.269 million passengers. It presently serves as a base for domestic operators Africa World Airlines, Starbow Airlines, fly540, and Antrak Air.

Kotoka Airport was renamed from Ghana International Airport, in honour of Lieutenant General Emmanuel Kwasi Kotoka (1926–1967), a member of the ruling National Liberation Council. Kotoka was killed in an abortive coup attempt, at a location which is now the forecourt of the airport. The airport consists of two passenger terminals, labelled as Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.

Terminal 1 serves primarily domestic and regional operators, while Terminal 2 serves primarily international and longhaul operators. The terminals are connected by an internal walkway. There is also a VVIP terminal used for diplomatic flights and a military terminal used for military operations. Terminal 2 is the principal international departure terminal and includes restaurants, duty-free shops and two Business Class lounges.
