Vilanculos Airport Upgrade

 Mozambique's Vilanculos Airport has been revamped after 13 months of work and approximately US$10 million, as Mozambique continues to upgrade its airports in pursuit of tourism and economic development.

The Chinese construction group Anhui Foreign Economic Construction was awarded the contract to upgrade and modernise the airport in the seaside tourist town of Vilanculos in Mozambique’s southern Inhambane province.

The capacity of the airport has been increased from 75 000 to 200 000 passengers per year and the total area of the facility now stands at 7 200 square metres. There are two departure terminals, a domestic terminal and an international arrivals terminal. In addition, the revamped airport has three car rental offices.
