i have some concerns on the renders. Where is the parking lot?
Source: http://www.dailynews.co.tz/index.php/local-news/33620-two-local-airports-set-for-major-expansionThe focus of the expansion at Mwanza airport will be on the terminal, parking and other areas except the runway. Among the benefits of upgrading the Mwanza airport to international standards is that it will increase international flights and boost international business in the Lake Zone regions.

Sijui ni macho yangu lakini ujenzi unaoendelea unaonekana kua mkubwa sana kua just Control Tower. Au labda due to angles that the photos are taken from.Overland visited the airport in mwanza and managed to see the construction of the control tower which is the only thing under construction at the moment, here below are the photos he managed to take.

i didn't manage to find the render of this project even though will keep trying, the good thing is U/C
Perhaps you have never thought of but let me tell you today
This Airport will save as a hub for Greatlakes Zone, as i said earlier Serengeti Western entrance gate is just one hour or less drive. Therefore will expect to see many flights landing at this airport as i guess it might be the next option after Jommo Kenyatta Int Airport.
As you can see Alshabab troubles in Kenya are some of the shortcomings to use Jommo Kenyata Int Airport. Mwanza Airport will be there to take cover.
Kilimanjaro Int Airport might be at risk-(Take it or burn it its my thinking anyway). The reason why many flights can't land at KIA is because of the mountain on either sides. Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru causes troubles especially when it comes there is a delay and wait on air. This is not new, it is known by the management and that is reason Why Kilimanjaro Int airport is not operating at full capacity/just think yourself what was the next option when Jommo Kenyatta caught fire last time? KIA okay...... how many planes landed at KIA? Why Just one?????
Mwanza being above the sea level than Dar Es Saam or Coast in General is another natural merit have got, it takes few minutes for the plane to reach 35,000+ft above the Sea level and applies the same during landing/descending. At this stage again on advantage side.
Its for these reasons you see Mwanza is coming nicely but silent!:cheers:
