A possible disruption in air traffic at the Kotoka International airport may just have been averted as the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority and the Ghana Airports Company take steps to resolve their current impasse.

The Civil Aviation Authority  has therefore advised the Ghana Air Traffic Controllers Association, the Ghana Air Traffic Safety Electronics Association and all other stakeholders involved to call off their proposed interruption in air traffic services to the Kotoka International Airport which would have taken effect from Friday, 19th February, 2016.

The Traffic Safety Electronics Association threatened to interrupt air traffic services to the Kotoka International Airport if the impasse is not resolved by Friday.

This will bring air traffic and flight activities to a halt.

Pulse Business can confirm that the two parties are at loggerheads over the 2006 Decoupling Asset Sharing Property Policy, which distributed  assets at the Kotoka International Airport between the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority and the Ghana Airports Company.

" The arrangement as it stands now has bee problematic for the Ghana Civil Aviation Authortiy, given that most of the landed property was awarded to the Ghana Airport Company." he said.

" The impasse occurred when the two parties could not agree on a redistribution of the assets. But as we speak, steps are being taken to resolve the situation."
