Kotoka International Airport (IATA: ACC, ICAO: DGAA) in Accra, Ghana is the country's most important international air facility and has the capacity for large aircraft such as the Airbus A380. The airport is operated by Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) which was established as a result of the decoupling of the existing Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) in line with the modern trends in the aviation industry.

The airport company was registered in January 2006 and commenced trading on 1 January 2007 tasked with the responsibility for planning, developing, managing and maintaining all airports and aerodromes in Ghana namely Kotoka International Airport (KIA) and the regional airports namely Kumasi, Tamale, Sunyani as well as airstrips.

KIA (Kotoka International Airport) serves as a hub of the West African sub-region and has air transport facilities and services for increased stakeholder value. In 2006, the airport served 1,083,431 passengers and this figure is set to rise with on-going modernization of airport facilities and operations. It presently serves as a hub for Antrak Air.

As part of the airport's corporate objectives, KIA works with the local communities, industry players and policy makers to ensure cleaner skies and to reduce any negative impacts of aviation on the environment. In 2007, The management also set clear targets to use technology to transform the operations of the airport into paperless organization and with the support of Hourglass Consulting, KIA - as part of the four Airports operated by GACL - can boast of being one of the first in Africa to adopt Cloud Computing.
