Transportation to Accra City Center from Airport

Ghana's capital and largest city, Accra is also the political, economic and cultural center of the country. Kotoka International Airport in the city, which is sister cities with Adana and Samsun in Turkey and Chicago and Washington in the United States, connects the important cities of Africa and the world and Accra.

The airport that hosts about 3 million passengers per year is not very big. However, it is possible to find almost anything here that travelers may need before and after the flight.

You can switch between terminals before leaving the airport. Restaurants, cafes, duty-free shops and private passenger lounges are located in Terminal 2, from where international flights take place.
