The tested above mentioned relations were done through data collected from the airport in Ghana. This is essential because of the lack of empirical research data gathered from a developing nation in Sub Saharan Africa (Svensson et al., 2008).

Aaker suggested in his article that in the tourist destination choice process, the image of destination area is critical factor. In tourism the mere extension of the image in the mind of tourist is more important than true representation of the image of any given location or region.
