Accra - Introduction

If you are searching for cheap flights to Accra click here. We guarantee the best deals for international Accra flights.

Kotoka International Airport (ACC) in Accra, Ghana is the country's most important international air facility and has the capacity for large aircraft such as the Airbus A380. The airport is the main base for Ghana International Airlines, Antrak Air and CTK - CiTylinK. It also houses a sizeable facility for the Ghana Air Force.

 

The airport is situated 10km (6 miles) north of Accra city centre.

The new departure and arrival terminals at KIA opened in 2004 but the planned covered gangways were not completed. Instead, shuttle buses are provided to move passengers from the gates to the aircraft.

 

Comprehensive redevelopment of the terminal was completed in recent years, which has included the provision of a proper lounge and a modern arrival/immigration/baggage hall. Further improvements are under way.

 

Travelers may experience unexpected delays even after checking in. Passengers should get the required seat reconfirmation stamped on the ticket, ensure that they have emergency funds for food and lodging in the event of the unexpected delays, and arrive at the airport at least two hours before the scheduled departure times.
