Review MacDan’s 15-year terminal 1 rent contract - Minority

The Member of Parliament for the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem Constituency in the Central Region Samuel Atta-Mills has called for a review of the contract and rent of the ground floor of Terminal 1 at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) to McDan Aviation for 15 years since January 2019.

Responding to a question on the Floor of Parliament on Wednesday, February 19, the Aviation Minister Mr AKofi Adda disclosed that ground floor of Terminal 1 at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) had been rented out to McDan Aviation for 15 years since January 2019.

He explained that all domestic flights were relocated from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 after the commissioning of the Terminal 3 to ensure efficiency in operations and passenger comfort.

The Minister further said McDan had also signed a management agreement with the United States military to provide logistics and handling services through the Terminal 1.

But Mr. Samuel Atta Mills says the Committee on Roads and Transport was not briefed on the matter hence the need for a review to be done.

To him, if the review is done and MacDan Aviation was justified to be awarded, so be it.

But if the deal was not properly done, we have to withdraw it in the interest of the state.

”If we have to modify the contract we have to, if we have to abrogate, we to do it. We need to review the contract and look at the conditions, if we need to abrogate, we abrogate,” he added.
