The Civil Aviation Authority of Botswana (CAAB) has announced the completion of the first phase of construction at Kasane International Airport.
From June 27, airport operations will move to the new building, confirmed Modipe Nkwe, Head of Public Affairs.
The partial completion of the Kasane International Airport project, a gateway to one of Botswana’s most visited tourism regions, continues the government’s drive to provide improved infrastructure to meet passenger demands.
The new terminal building measures 7 800sqm compared with the original airport at 1 300sqm.
The next phase of construction involves the blending and refurbishment of the existing terminal and other buildings, and is due for completion in November.
