Airport Overview

Formerly a military airport, Nacala airport underwent a major redevelopment to convert it to commercial use, due to the rising importance of the northern transport corridor and planned economic development for the northern provinces of Tete, Nampula, Niassa and Cabo Delgado. The redeveloped airport opened in 2014.

Airport Picture

 

Passenger and Cargo Performance Indicator

The airport is brand new and is only operating at less than 10% capacity due to the economic crisis that has affected Mozambique’s growth since 2015. However, a significant increase in traffic is expected following resumption of various economic activities and key mining and agricultural projects in the north of the country. The development prospects of the port of Nacala, (a USD 300 million rehabilitation and upgrading programme of which has just started), will also certainly contribute to the rise of both national and international passenger traffic.
