Its not bad at all.

The expansion was well needed, as JKIA is operating above capacity, and every year new carriers start flying there. (Qatar Airways is the newest - Dec05)

nice renders by the way

Updated expansion plans:

JKIA EXPANSION PLANS

In 2004, a Canadian-Kenyan consortium led by Queen's Quay Architects International Inc (Q2) and including Mueller International Inc (Sypher) won the consulting contract for the renovation and forecast expansion requirements for JKIA.

The facility evaluation and conceptual recommendations were completed and officially accepted in January 2005, leading to the detailed design and tender documents phase.

This expansion project was valued at $115m and the bulk of the cost is intended to be provided out of revenues and World Bank funding (10%).

In October 2005, the Kenya Airports Authority announced the final plans for the expansion of JKIA. The expansion project will double the current size of JKIA from 25,662mē to 55,222mē with the new Terminal 4 building. Aircraft parking, which has been a major problem in the past, will be improved by an increase in apron space from 200,000mē to over 300,000mē, and also additional taxiways will be constructed.

The arrivals and departures sections are now to be totally separated for increased security, and the waiting areas are to be renovated. It is still under debate at government level as to whether the airport needs a second runway. Currently there is only one runway (06/24) which is 4,117m (13,507ft) paved in asphalt and ILS (Instrument Landing System) equipped. The current runway is sufficient to accommodate over 80,000 landings and take-offs a year but at the moment the number is only 60,000.

CONTRACTOR AND CONSTRUCTION

In August 2006 the KAA signed a contract worth $38m (2.6bn Kenyan Shillings) with Wu Yi Co Ltd of China for the expansion project construction work.

The first phase of the project started in September 2006 (ground breaking at the end of September) and is expected to last ten months.

The first phase will involve taxiway, apron construction, civil works for the new terminal building, extension of the fuel hydrant system and fencing. The second phase, which will begin mid-2007 will satisfy the urgent need for the expansion and upgrading of the airport buildings.

The expansion project has been divided into three phases to avoid disruption of the airport's operations. In subsequent phases the airport is set to have a new parking lot to accommodate 1,500 cars, airfield lighting, apron flood lights and the parking stands will be increased to accommodate 43 aircraft from the current 23.

Info Sheet:



Here are some renders of the airport:

Beautiful. Those shades resemble accacia trees (the most common tree in the savannah). There couldnt be a better way to say "welcome to Africa".

Though I think they copied the design of Kenyas third international airport at Eldoret for that entrance.

Kenguy, do you have any pictures of Eldoret International airport? I've looked all over the net without success.

Has anyone noticed that the airport design is shaped like a Q?
I wonder if it has anything to do with the national carrier:kenya Airways.
Their code and symbol is KQ.

Very nice (and badly needed) expansion plans. Kenya Airways has shown incredible growth over the last decade or so. It's playing a major part in transforming NBO into a hub airport.

Yep! Its loooong overdue. Nairobi is already the hub for East and Central Africa. I think the expansion will broaden the airports appeal as the stop-over of choice for those travelling to West Africa from Europe and beyond and maybe Southern Africa though I believe Oliver Tambo (Joburg) and MMIA in Nigeria and Accra/Abidjan may provide really stiff competition for JKIA.

NBO is very well positioned at the moment as a central and east African hub. There's currently no major hub in west Africa and it'll probably be several years before one is established so it can also take advantage of that. Joburg is well developed to serve southern Africa but becomes unfeasible for connections to north of the equator. I would say NBO's main competition would be Addis Ababa which also has a strong home carrier but I think the rapid development of Kenya Airways' impressive African network should cement its position as the gateway to east Africa. And it's a great place to stop over for a couple of days...I can't wait to return

Nairobi | Jomo Kenyatta International Airport | 9million PAX | Under Construction (2010)

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport

NBO - HKJK - JKIA

2006 - 2009


Quote:
On the 14th October 2005, the Kenya Airports Authority announced their plans to expand Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Over the next two years, the authority announced that it would improve airport facilities across Kenya, especially at Nairobi.

The expansion project was prompted as Jomo Kenyatta airport's annual passenger flow topped 4 million, while the airport was only constructed to handle 2.5 million passengers.

The expansion of the airport will more than double its size, from 25,662 sq metres to 55,222 sq metres. Aircraft parking, which is currently constrained, will be increased from 200,000 square metres to over 300,000 square metres, and additional taxiways will be built. The arrivals and departures section will be fully separated, and the waiting area will be revamped.

The expansion will increase the airport's capacity to 9 million passengers a year. The project will cost the Kenya Airports Authority $100 million. The World Bank will provide $10 million. The first phase of upgrading commenced on September 29, 2006.

Nairobi needs this very much and the other International Airports Mombasa and Eldoret should be upgraded. Kisumu should also be upgraded to International standards.
