The Minister of Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, has disclosed that the Kotoka International Airport has raised over GH¢136 million within four years.

According to him, the accumulated revenue was from its opening in September 2018 to December 2022.

Kwaku Asiamah made this known during a presentation in Parliament last week.

"Mr Speaker, Terminal 3 of Kotoka International Airport became operational in 2018 up to today, revenue generated from September 2018 to December 2022 is GH¢136,525, 961 million from these private entities."

The Kotoka International Airport (KIA), was originally a military airport used by the British Royal Air Force during World War II in 1946.

The facility was later handed over to civilian authority after a successful pull-out by the military.

In response to globalization and the growing demand for air travel at the time, a development project was launched to reconfigure the structure into a terminal building in 1956.

The airport is operated by Ghana Airports Company Limited, which has its offices on the airport property and serves as a sole international airport.
