The Comptroller-General of Immigration (CGI), Mr Kwame Asuah Takyi, has inspected ongoing construction of terminal three project at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) in Accra.

The CGI was accompanied by the Deputy Comptroller-General in-charge of Finance and Administration, Mrs Judith Dzokoto-Lomoh, and the Deputy Comptroller-General in-charge of Command Post and Operations, Mr Laud Affrifah.

The inspection afforded the CGI and his entourage the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the project and ensure that immigration work stations designed for monitoring and regulating the entry and exit of travelers at the terminal met standard and specifications.

The KIA Commander at KIA, Deputy Commissioner of Immigration (DCI) Mr Eric Afari, and some management members of the Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL), met the entourage at the airport.

The entourage was briefed on the progress of work and was later conducted round the project site by the Supervising Architect, Mr Fernando Prieto. They were also simulated on the arrival processes.

Some areas of the project visited included the arrival and departure halls, immigration booths and offices, passenger detention cells, boarding gates, business lounges and operation centre.

The project, when completed, can process 1,250 passengers per hour, with over five million passengers a year throughput.

It would also have six boarding aerobridges, three business lounges, and a large retail area among others.
