President Akufo-Addo is expected to commission the rehabilitated Sunyani Airport on August 3, 2022.
The Sunyani Airport was shut down in March 2015 after the runway developed many challenges which were not conducive for flight.
The rehabilitation works began in February 2019. The rehabilitation work was delayed because of the outbreak of COVID-19.
The airport was rehabilitated at the cost of 50 million cedis. DAA Construction Limited constructed the wall. Resources Access Limited on its part constructed the runway. The runway has been extended from 1,280 meters to 1,400 meters.
The Managing Director of the Ghana Airport Company Limited, Pamela Djamson-Tettey has indicated that the completion of rehabilitation works will go a long way to help generate income for the country.
