Tripoli Airport Expansion

Tripoli International is to be expanded and modernised. The airport is to get a new terminal and a completely new airport is to be built at Libya's second largest city Benghazi.

Development of airports in tourist destinations such as Ghat and Ghadames has also started, and there are major expansion plans for the airport in Sebha, in the south of the country, which is important for international traffic between Europe and Africa.

At Tripoli airport, the plan is to construct a new terminal, with a capacity of five million passengers a year. Expansion will continue until a passenger capacity of twelve million passengers per year is reached.

Libya's CAA has financed the expansion at Tripoli airport itself, but the backing of foreign investors for the new airport at Benghazi is needed. Proposals have been put forward by international companies on a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) basis.

No renderings available at this time, will post them when they come up on the internet.

Why is a new airport going to be built in Benghazi? If so, what's wrong with the current airport?

FG to Expand Lagos Int’l Airport

By Chinedu Eze in Lagos and Reuben Buhari in Kaduna,

09.05.2007


The Federal Government has announced that it would expand the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos (MMIA) as a remedy to the congestion at the nation’s busiest airport.
Minister of Transportation, Mrs. Deziani Alison-Madueke, disclosed this yesterday after inspecting parts of the airport.
She said the airport needed to be expanded to make for seamless facilitation of surging passengers whose number increases with the economic improvement of Lagos as the West African hub.
She did not however elaborate on the nature of the expansion project at the airport which was built in 1977 by the government of Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo.
The minister also said her ministry had taken it upon itself to upgrade the value of the actual travel experience of Nigerian consumers.
Speaking during the inspection of facilities at the airport, including the recently refurbished control tower and new radar, which is part of the Total Radar Coverage of Nigeria (TRACON), Alison-Madueke explained that she had come to see things for herself with a view to putting the right things in place.
“We have to do something to upgrade the value of the actual travel experience before Nigerian consumers, and that has to do with physical aspect in our terminal building. We obviously have to do some sort of expansion at the Murtala Muhammed Airport,” she said.
If the airport is expanded, she said, it would save time for passengers who would now spend less time checking in, while general activities at the airport would become faster.
The congestion at the airport has been the butt of criticism for some time now.
The managing director of Turkish Airlines, Hassan Mutlu, had earlier told THISDAY that the progress at the airport was being slowed down by congestion, saying that the nation’s premier international airport needed urgent expansion with increased facilities to meet the needs of the thousands of passengers that throng at the airport daily.
The minister however said “we are going to automate our system, to cut down on the time it takes to actually walk through Customs which will be decreased if we have a second screening section in the airport, therefore, the airport expansion will be holistic”
On infrastructure, Alison-Madueke frowned at the decay at the airports and noted that some critical equipment that should be given priority attention were ignored or given after-thought attention, identifying one of the critical equipment as power generation, so that the airports are consistently supplied with the requisite level of power to prevent fluctuation and prevent the instruments from breaking down.
On non-release of fiscal allocation to aviation agencies, she stated that the issue of funds was one major problem facing the sector, adding: “We have a lot of parameters which we cannot use. However, all uncompleted projects should be completed before the end of the year”.
In another development, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), has asked some concessionaires operating inside the terminal building to vacate their shops for the expansion of the Lagos airports.
The Minister was accompanied on the tour by parastatal chiefs, airport service providers, contractors and some airline chiefs.
Affected are commercial banks, GSM service pro-viders and others.
The operation of the concessionaires, with their shops springing up both at the departure and arrival points, has reduced the space for passengers.
Meanwhile, as part of efforts toward ensuring that this year’s Hajj operations in Kaduna State goes smoothly, the Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Alhaji Mohammed Yusuf, disclosed yesterday that the repairs of the runways and lighting system would be finished in 30 days.
Yusuf made this disclosure, when he paid a courtesy visit to the Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Namadi *****, where the MD added that two new screening machines for luggage and passengers had been installed at the airport.
Affirming FAAN’s commitment to a smooth Hajj operation, Yusuf added that “as part of my drive to transform the Kaduna airport, I have transferred one of my best managers to Kaduna, including engineers so that within a short time there will be a total transformation of the airport.
“We have also brought 2 brand new screening machines for luggage and passengers. This is to ensure that everything that passes through the airport is safe and secured. We have equally checked all the facilities at the airport to make sure that they are in order. The Pilgrims Stand at the airport is currently undergoing total renovation.”
Governor Namadi, while replying, told the MD that the state had concluded arrangements for the provision of water and power lines at the airport, in fulfilment of the state’s desire to upgrade the airport to a standard one.
PS: Hopefully, this won´t take 20 years to accomplish! Always the same slow-motion in Nigeria:bash: Since 1977, 30 years have passed, it is urgent time for expansion. Moreover, what the article is saying, all semms to boild down to cosmetic work and no real expansion:lol:

I agree. In fact, I took it as BAD NEWS. The way the minister is using vague statements like "we must expand the terminal, etc.".

What I look forward to hear is a plan: mentioning floor areas, chosen designers, and basically a master plan for the airport in the 21st century.

The new transport minister, while being graceful and educated, is not demonstrating seriousness yet in mobilizing the private sector.

^^ yeah i think work has commenced. Its beautiful indeed. Any updates on the project would be appreciated.:cheers: in advance.
^^
The Jomo Kenyatta airport is supposed to take place in 3 phases. Im not sure of what every phase of the project comprises but in the first phase (which they have started) is putting a new taxiway and hangar. most of the work at the moment has been digging foundations and rearranging wiring and pipes.

The project has been slowed down by lack of a certain grade of cement which apparently is in high demand in other public works projects taking place countrywide and the current construction boom in Kenya. Most of the real works will begin in about 3-4 months time.
