The Kumasi Airport may have been improved, but it befits "a little town in Europe," former first Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings has said in an interview with TV3’s Nana Aba Anamoah.
She said despite the recent refurbishment of the Airport to allow 24-hour operations, it still lacked the trappings of a befitting Airport. President John Mahama and Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II recently inaugurated the refurbished Airport, which cost $29 million.
Operations at the Airport were restricted to day time – 6am to 6pm – pending the completion of the rehabilitation.
In October this year, the Ghana Airport Company partially closed the airport to enable contractors upgrade the tarmac, install an airfield ground lighting system and upgrade other facilities.
The closure caused distress to local flights and passengers.
Mrs Rawlings said except for a smoother and better runway, she noticed nothing extraordinary about the refurbished Airport when she recently flew to Kumasi to visit Asante Monarch Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
