Amandi Holding Limited, contractors working on the Ho Airport venture, will formally hand over the facility to government in March, this year.
This takes place after the fulfillment of work on the $25 million venture supported by the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) to help boost monetary exercises and tourism in the Volta Region, Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, the Volta Regional Minister said at a press soiree composed by the Ministry of Information in Ho.
The project, which was scheduled for completion in September 2016, has 1,900-metre runway, traffic control tower, 1,150 capacity passenger waiting area, an ultramodern air bus terminal and an automatic fire detection system.
The airport, with the slogan, “Ho Airport, the New Destination” is expected to host domestic and commercial flights and open up the region for growth.
“…2018 is going to be very exciting because the airport will be operational. It will be an action year, as the region opens up for investors,” Dr Letsa stated.
He said foundations had been laid for rapid economic and infrastructure growth in the region and hinted of the resumption of work on the Ho dual carriage and the Eastern corridor roads soon.
Perry Okudzeto, a Deputy Minister of Information, said government identify the part of the media in the improvement of the nation and was “assembling more extensions” for mutual advantage.
He said 2017 checked “good start” for government with the launch of project and programmes to enhance agriculture, education, and job creation, among others, and called for help from the media and citizenry.
