Kotoka Airport: Ghana

ATIS Deployment: Ghana, Africa

Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Ghana, is the country's premier international airport and has the capacity for large aircraft such as the Boeing 747-8. In 2012, the airport had 2,269,000 passengers.

Project Description

STR worked with French Aerospace company THALES in 2011 to provide a StarCaster system to modernize the airport's ATIS.

Benefits of StarCaster

The Director General of the Ghana CAA indicated the importance of StarCaster to operations:

quote The StarCaster ATIS system has now become an integral part of the air traffic control services provided by the KIA control tower. Our air traffic controllers appreciate the use of the StarCaster ATIS system because it greatly simplifies the process of creating and broadcasting a clear and consistent ATIS message as soon as new weather information is received or runway conditions change. Air traffic management is satisfied with the system because it greatly reduces the work load and enhances flight safety. quote

K-Mamphey, Director-General, Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA)
