Next Phase For JKIA

The second phase of a major $66 million investment project at Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is due to begin in November.  This will be the construction of a new terminal and car parking facilities.  The work is due to take 21 months with a planned completion date of August 2011.
The first phase of the project involved the laying of new aprons and other infrastructure work.  Once the whole programme is finished in December 2013, the airport’s capacity will have been raised from 2.5mppa to 9.3 mppa.  The third phase will involve renovation of all the existing airport terminals and the arrivals building.  The number of parking stands available for passenger aircraft will increase from 23 to 37.
