Zanzibar Airport

The government of Tanzania, with World Bank funding, awarded the contract to refurbish and extend the existing aprons and taxiways at the airport in Zanzibar to Sogea-Satom.

An additional taxiway will be built to connect with the runway extended by the Sogea-Satom teams in 2009. The goal is to continue to upgrade the airport and build a new 70,000 sq. metre aircraft parking area to accommodate wide-bodied aircraft.

The work, which will take 21 months to complete, have a value of €35 million.

Following renovation of the runway in record time in 2009, this is the company’s second contract in the archipelago, a major tourist destination off the coast near the capital of Dar Es Salaam.
