The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, has announced that it will temporarily close down the VIP and VVIP lounges of the Kotoka International Airport.
A statement by the Ministry on Friday said the closure has been necessitated by “circumstances beyond its control”.
The two lounges will be closed from Monday 12th June, 2017 until further notice, the statement added.
The VIP and VVIP lounges of the airport are used primarily by State officials including the President, Vice-President and other high ranking members of society.
It is also open to diplomats and high profiled dignitaries from other countries.
