The new airport will be built in the district of Msalato, 12 kilometres from the capital.
The project involves the construction of high-capacity airport infrastructure to meet the expected growth in air transport from the city's new role as the administrative capital of Tanzania.
Work will be carried out over four years and will include a passenger terminal, a runway, air navigation equipment.
The new facility is expected to handle at least 50,000 aircrafts and a million passengers per year, most of which will be international.
Wrong brother, Rwanda is building theirs at 1.3 billion, that's almost 4 times more that use. I think this design is perfect. It looks practical and makes sense too.Terrible design for the price tag, Kigali is spending around the same amount for their International airport yet their air port looks world class.
250mil does not involve terminal building alone tho.Dar looks amazing on the exterior, on the interior it is very poorly designed with very little shops and decoration.
Dodoma port looks just lazy and unimaginative. Please if you're gonna spend 250+ million on an airport make it look pleasant.
