Expansion at Dar es Salaam airport

Dutch firm to carry out second phase of airport expansion.

Dutch construction firm BAM International has won the contract to design and construct a new terminal for the Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam.

The €100-million contract involves building a 60,000-sqm terminal to boost the airport's annual capacity from its current two million passengers to six million.

The new terminal has been designed together with NACO Netherlands Airport Consultants and is due for completion in 2017. The existing international Terminal 2 will then cater for domestic flights.

The announcement from the Tanzania Airports Authority follows BAM International's successful completion of the €130-million first phase of the airport's expansion, begun in 2013.

Tanzania's largest airport is located about 12km southwest of Dar es Salaam city centre.
