Aircrafts at the Kumasi International Airport have cancelled their flights for the next three days due to bad weather.

The development has led to tens of stranded passengers being forced to travel by road, leaving the Accra –Kumasi highway packed with so many vehicles.

A Metrological officer at the Kumasi International Airport, Isaac Taki Tetteh, has told the Daily Graphic that ‘Currently visibility is just one kilometre. Visibility is below 400 meters and it’s dangerous to fly."

"In the aviation industry the visibility standard is five kilometres but anything above two kilometres would be fine for business to start.,’ he added.

The Metrological officer was however hopeful that flight business will begin within the next three days as the weather would have been better at the time.
