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.
