Lusa - Business News - Angola: New airport 'too big' - Economist Intelligence Unit




London, March. 19 (Lusa) - Luanda's new international airport is too big for the needs of the country, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) said on Tuesday.
Analysts from The Economist said the scale of the new airport, which aims to handle 10 million passengers a year, was "impressive", but that they had doubts regarding whether there was demand for such a big airport or if an installation of such a size could be maintained.
The added that the location, on the outskirts of the capital, could be a problem since new roads and rail links that are being built to connect the airport to the city centre would make journeys even slower due to traffic jams.
The statement by the EIU comes days after a presidential dispatch was published authorising the urgent rehabilitation of the runway of the current international airport of Luanda.
Angola's government last week announced that works on the New Luanda Angola International Airport, which Chinese contractors have been building for 10 years, would be submitted to engineering and functionality corrections to adapt the structure to modern standards.
