Hajj pilgrims from the three northern regions have become the first to benefit from the first phase of the Tamale airport expansion and upgrade project.

The first batch of pilgrims were airlifted directly from Tamale to Medina for Hajj following the inauguration by President John Mahama on Friday.

“The decision to upgrade the Tamale Airport to an international one is a well thought-through program aimed at extending opportunities to the people of the North for accelerated growth and development of our people,” President Mahama pointed out.

“Government will work with the GACL to see the airport develop into an aerotropolis with a one stop shop for hotels, conferencing facilities, shops and restaurants to serve as an economic growth node to improve more jobs and grow the local economy,” he informed.
