President Guebuza inaugurates Pemba airport terminal
 
Pemba (Mozambique), 25 Mar (AIM) –President Armando Guebuza on Tuesday inaugurated a new terminal at the international airport in Pemba, capital of the northern province of Cabo Delgado.

The work to reshape and expand the airport, including its runway, cost US$6.2 million provided by the publicly owned Mozambican Airports Company (ADM) out of its own funds.

There are now two lounges for embarking passengers, one for domestic and the other for international flights (mostly to Dar es Salaam and to Johannesburg). Previously, domestic and international passengers were processed in the same room. There is also a specific area for passengers in transit.

The check-in area has been expanded, and the passenger terminal now covers 3,000 square metres rather than the previous 1,800. This has made space available for shops and offices for air companies. The embarkation area can hold 260 passengers at peak times (previously the maximum was 80) with international standards of comfort.

The runway is now 1,800 metres long and 45 metres wide. The largest aircraft currently using the airport are Boeing 737s.

The airport was built in the 1960s, for a low volume of traffic, and was expanded and modernised in the 1980s. In recent years, with a boom in tourism and in mineral resources in Cabo Delgado, the airport has operating at above its theoretical maximum capacity.

More passengers have moved through the airport than it was built for, and as a result it was unable to observe international civil aviation standards for the comfort and safety of passengers.

The new terminal eliminates these problems, and is intended to transform Pemba into an attractive airport for tourists and business travellers.
