The Ho Airport is scheduled to open for the first commercial flight within the next two weeks.

Barring unforeseen challenges, a local carrier, Africa World Airline is expected to begin operations on the Accra-Ho-Accra route within the period.

This was disclosed by the Minister for Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah who paid a working visit to the airport to inspect its facilities. He was accompanied by the Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Letsa, officials of the Transport Ministry, the Ghana Airport Company Limited and the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority.

Mr Asiamah said the management of the local carrier, Africa World Airline has notified the Ministry and other stakeholders that it has completed assessment on the airport and ready to fly the Accra-Ho-Accra route.

Mr Asiamah however urged the chiefs and people of the region to patronize the services of the domestic airlines to sustain their businesses.

Mr. Asiamah advised the people against encroachment on the boundaries of the airport for future expansion works. The Managing Director of Ghana Airport Company, Yaw Kwakwa said the necessary personnel and equipment are available to commence operations.

The Awafiaga of Asogli and Dufia of Ho Dome, Togbe Lakle Howusu said the opening of the airport will enhance socio-economic activities in the region.

The over 25-million-dollar Ho Airport project began in September 2015 and was completed and handed over to the government nearly three years ago.
