Travellers are likely to see some additional security changes at the  Kotoka International airport and other regional airports in response to the recent terror attacks in neighbouring countries.

As part of the measures all passengers will be screened before entering the departure halls at the airport.

The National Security Council had issued a terror alert after the attack by Al-Quaeda on an Ivory Coast beach resort this month.

Since then, security arrangements have been made in various hotels and other places where the attacks are likely to occur.

Airports recently became a potential target after an airport in Brussels, Belgium was attacked.

A statement by the Ghana Airports Company Limited said it has restricted entry to the terminal only to the travelling public.

All unauthorised persons will not be allowed to access restricted areas.

The new arrangement will also affect people who park unauthorised vehicles in front of the terminal.

The airport square will also be decongested  and military and police presence will be increased.

The GACL is pleading withe the public to bare with these new changes as the enhance security at the airports in the wake of terrorists attacks
