As part of preparations to start full operation of flights from the new Tamale Airport Terminal effective 31st July, 2023, all flights to and from Tamale Airport will be operating from the new terminal starting Saturday, 29th July, 2023, as part of the gradual migration. This forms part of the operationalization of the new Terminal. The objective is to manage the risks associated with the transfer of operations from the old to the new Terminal.
Airlines have been advised to inform their passengers to arrive at the new airport terminal ahead of scheduled departure time to avoid any delays.
Work on Phase Two (2) of the Tamale Airport Project commenced in July 2019 and includes the construction of an Airport Terminal Building designed for Annual Passenger throughput of 400,000, a Multi-Purpose Terminal, a 5km road network (off Tamale-Bolgatanga Road) and other ancillary facilities.
The features of the New Terminal Building include a VIP lounge; two (2) Boarding Gates; two (2) Self-Service Check-in Kiosks; eight (8) Check-in Desks; Airline offices and Commercial Retail Areas.
As part of the Project Design, a completely new 5km Road Network has been constructed to facilitate easy accessibility to the Airport. Additionally, the Multi-Purpose Terminal, which was completed in 2022, was used in facilitating Hajj Pilgrims during the Annual Pilgrimage to Mecca in 2022 and 2023.
The Phased development of Tamale Airport is part of an elaborate plan to make the facility an alternate Airport to Kotoka International Airport with capability to handle Wide Body Aircraft in emergency situations.
