Expansion set to start at international airport

07 June 2018 | Infrastructure

The Namibia Airports Company (NAC) announced that its N$240 million plans to expand the Hosea Kutako International Airport will extend over a period of the next eight months, adding that the planned expansion is not expected to have any serious effects on airport operations.

In a media statement, the NAC said temporary expansions of the current facility in certain key areas are planned.

These include the check-in hall, security screening point, arrivals hall and luggage handling areas.

However, these are all temporary improvements that will only be useful for the next five years.

The existing terminal building was constructed in 1985 to handle 250 000 passengers a year, but currently, the airport handles nearly a million passengers per annum.

The statement further said the company is engaged in determining funding options for the new airport terminal and related investments. These options include a Public Private Partnership, Treasury funding and raising money from local sources against the NAC balance sheet.

According to the NCA, projections show that traffic volumes at the airport will double in another 10 to 15 years

This necessitates the construction of a new airport terminal as well as improvements of the runway, taxiway and the apron.
