Kamuzu International Airport
KIA: Up for rehabilitation.

Japanese envoy Shuichiro Nishioka disclosed that his government has decided to support the rehabilitation of the airport after noticing the dilapidation of some buildings.

“The buildings at KIA need major rehabilitation and maintenance in order for the airport to be a safe landing place,” Nishioka told reporter at the signing ceremony last week in Lilongwe.

He added that the airport also needed to install new equipment such as the airport surveillance system.

Minister of Transport and Public Works Francis Kasaila said the project would help KIA accommodate more planes once completed.

“At the end of the project, Malawi will be a safe landing place where people will be getting on and off their flights confidently,” he said.

The project is expected to start in 2016 and be completed in 2018.
