Kotoka International Airport KIA,
Formerly a military airport, KIA was first used by the British Royal Force during WW11 in 1946. Later, it was left in the hands of the civilian authority. Years after, the airport was redeveloped with new terminals and commissioned to accommodate a little over 500,00 travelers in 1958.
The name, Kotoka International Airport, however, was a renaming strategy that was meant to honor one of Ghana’s heads of state, General E.K Kotoka in 1969.
