Government has reached an agreement with the management of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to release 153 out of 640 acres of land at La Nkwantanan near Adenta for installation of aviation equipment.

On Saturday July 9, Domestic flights were grounded following a strike action by civil aviation workers over the sale of lands belonging to GCAA by government to estate developers.

The workers had earlier rejected the Lands Minister, Nii Osah Mills’ proposal to release 20 acres of land for the use of GCAA.

Spokesperson for the workers union, William Amoako, said they have reached a compromised agreement with government.

"The compromises are that they are giving us 153 acres of the land for the installation of the equipment and also for the other impending equipment that we need to install which is not immediate," he said.

Amoako said government has also promised to release some lands in Prampram in the Greater Accra Region and other places as and when they need it for aviation purposes.

Domestic airlines lost GHC200,000 in ticket refund to customers they could not fly due to the strike action by GCAA workers last week.
