Thyssenkrupp Enables Best Arrivals Experience for Passengers at Africa’s Airports

thyssenkrupp, in partnership with its local distributor ARG1 Africa Ltd., is bringing its superior airport mobility expertise to Kotoka International Airport’s brand new Terminal 3, including seven passenger boarding bridges, three escalators, 16 elevators, and over 40 auxiliary equipment units. The company has previously supplied solutions at airports across Africa, including in Algeria, Cameroon, South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria, to name a few.

Mauro Carneiro, CEO thyssenkrupp Airport Solutions says, “Together with our local partners, we are proud to be a part of making the arrivals and departures of passengers at Accra’s airport a world-class experience. Our involvement in Terminal 3 is a continuation of our work, together with the Ghana Airport Company Limited, on Terminal 2, and we are especially glad to have been chosen to supply the airport’s very first passenger boarding bridges.”

According to the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority, the number of international airline operations at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) has increased from 35 to 38 and between 2016 and 2017, Accra saw a 14 percent increase in passenger traffic. thyssenkrupp previously collaborated with ARG1 to supply two escalators and six elevators at the airport’s Terminal 2.

Global Distributor Management: providing access to new markets

Accra’s airport is yet another project to benefit from thyssenkrupp Elevator’s distribution partner approach. While thyssenkrupp has a direct presence in more than 70 countries, it has set up a network of strategic distribution partners to reach additional key markets. In this regard, Ghana’s growing population and economic development represents a significant business opportunity for thyssenkrupp Elevator’s urban mobility innovations.

The partnership with ARG1 in Ghana has seen thyssenkrupp assume a leading position in the Ghanaian elevator market. Its products and services have been successfully installed at the tallest residential building in West Africa, The Alto; the largest hospital with 650 beds, Legon Teaching Hospital; the tallest hotel building, Emaar Boulevard; the largest market in West Africa in Kumas and Standard Chartered Bank's Head Office.
