Ghana improves in global rating for safety in Aviation

Ghana has improved in the global rating for oversight safety in Aviation from 64% to 89.89%.


The Minister for Aviation, Mr. Joseph Kofi Adda, announced this when he paid a working visit to the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) to access the progress of work at the New Air Navigation Service building and the Northern Apron on Thursday.


The facilities, which are 60% complete, are expected to provide safety and security at the Airport. The expansion will also help the GCAA accommodate more aircraft and improve upon the working environment of the Authority.


Mr Adda, therefore, commended the management of the GCAA and the Ghana Airport Company for the measures the two were putting in place to lift Ghana’s air transport.


The Project Manager of Amandi Investment Limited, the company undertaking the contract, Mr Mahmud Attila, assured that the Apron would reduce the time for the maneuvering of aircraft and facilitate fast takeoff.


On his part, the architect of the GCAA project, Mr Alex Akoto-Bamfo, announced that the Air Navigation building would host offices of the GCAA and Air navigation services; equipment, a gym and two elevators.
