The construction of terminal three at the Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA) is 68% complete. This is according to the Minister for Works, Transport and Communications, Prof Makame Mbarawa.
The project’s good progress brings hope that the country will soon more than double its passenger capacity at its main airport. “The construction is progressing well. We are still expecting the job to be complete before the end of this year,” said Prof Mbarawa during his tour of the site.
Meanwhile, the construction of the outside facilities is complete. Currently, experts are installing some vital materials, including cargo handling machines inside the building.
Upon completion, terminals 1, 2 and 3 of the airport will handle a total of 9 million passengers annually.
