Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport upgrading and expansion project is now sixty percent complete.

At completion is set to accommodate the then anticipated traffic given the ongoing surge in traffic and passenger numbers.

The 153-million-U.S.-dollar project, which received funding from the China Export-Import Bank, will add a new international terminal building and aprons, four new bridges, a secondary radar system, a VVIP pavilion, an airfield ground lighting and communication system, among other things.

The project is expected to increase the airport’s holding capacity to 6 million people per annum from 2.5 million.
