Oman know-how for Kilimanjaro airport
Christine Mwakatobe, acting MD of the Kilimanjaro Airport Development Company (KADC), and Abdul Nasser Abdullah al Yamani, VP business development, Oman Airports, have signed a MoU to develop the aviation infrastructure of the Tanzanian airport which has been in operation since 1971.
Following the agreement, the East African country, as the owner of the airport with the Iata code JRO, will benefit from Oman Airports’ experience in airport management. The MoU stipulates that Oman Airports will undertake the development of the general terminal for VIPs and hangar facility at JRO, the building of a five-star hotel for passengers and a business complex/shopping mall in the airport.
The MoU includes scope for the creation of other facilities, such as a dedicated freight terminal, which may be agreed upon mutually between the parties. (ah)
