The airport will features state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure to meet the requirements of the rapidly developing air transport sector of Rwanda. It will also offer maximum flexibility to meet the operational requirements and support the future expansions.

The airport will be completed in two phases, with the phase one involving the construction of a passenger terminal and a cargo terminal building, a 4.2km-long runway, an airfield. The runway is designed to handle the big commercial aircraft.

Key infrastructure to support the airport’s operation, including air traffic control tower building and airport rescue and fire-fighting facilities, will also be built under the first phase.

Phases two through four will further expand the airport to increase its passenger and aircraft handling capacities. The phases will involve the construction of a second runway and additional passenger and cargo terminals. Future expansions will increase the airport’s capacity to 4.5 million passengers a year.
