SITA to Manage Key Systems at Kotoka Int. Airport in Ghana

Ghana Airports has extended its agreement with SITA to manage and support all airport passenger processing, baggage management, and airport operations systems across Kotoka International Airport’s newly commissioned Terminal 3 for the next five years.

SITA deployed common use check-in desks and self-service check-in kiosks in the airport's newest terminal which opened last year.

The airport will also make use of SITA’s state of the art baggage management technology that will assist airlines in reconciling and tracking bags across the journey.

Yaw Kwakwa, Managing Director of Ghana Airports Company, said, “Having implemented many of the solutions in use at Terminal 3, together with their experience across numerous African airports, SITA were best placed to support the management of these vital systems that underpin the smooth operation of Kotoka International Airport.”

Operating in 45 of the 54 African countries, SITA supports a growing footprint of airports across the continent, including key hubs such as OR Tambo International in South Africa and Bole International Airport in Ethiopia.

Hani El-Assaad, SITA President, Middle East, India & Africa, said, “With a rapidly expanding economy in Ghana, Kotoka International Airport has emerged as one of the main and fastest-growing hubs on the continent. We are pleased to support the smooth operation of this important hub. It is an endorsement of SITA’s experience and proven technology that today is used in many airports across Africa.”
