Jomo Kenyatta Airport to expand to 12 million passengers p/a
Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport plans to complete its expansion in 2011, increasing capacity from 5 million passengers p/a to 12 million (AllAfrica, 01-Jul-2010). Acting Transport Minister, Amos Kimunya, stated the expansion is in the USD93.2 million phase two, including Terminal 4, aircraft parking bays (44 for passenger and nine for cargo services) and a three-storey parking facility.
Transport Ministry: “This will be critical in assessing our preparedness of meeting the demand for the East African market. We need to unlock the huge potential that the airport has by increasing its capacity. Upgrading of the passenger facilities to international standards will elevate JKIA to be at par with or better than competing airports such as Addis Ababa or Cairo,” Amos Kimunya, Acting Transport Minister.
