President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has commissioned Phase I of the Sunyani Airport Rehabilitation Project.

He commissioned the facility on Wednesday, 3rd August 2022.

The rehabilitation of this airport, according to him, was a critical part of the government’s vision to expand the frontiers of the aviation industry in the country, and to realise the dream of making Ghana an aviation hub in West Africa.

The scope of works included the rehabilitation and extension of the runway from one thousand, two hundred and eighty metres (1,280 metres) to one thousand four hundred metres (1,400 metres); repair of the apron to accommodate small to medium size aircraft; minimal renovation of the Terminal Building; and construction of some airport internal roads.
