Runway at Jamba aerodrome in Angola to be repaired

8 April 2013

The Jamba aerodrome runway, which is around 3,200 metres long, is due to be repaired this year in order to allow small aircraft to land there and to improve circulation of people and goods, said the deputy governor of Kwando Kubango province.

The deputy governor Joaquim Malitchi said that the work at the aerodrome would cost a total of US$2 million.

Malitchi also told Angolan news agency Angop that the contract had been awarded to a Namibian construction company and that the project included a communications tower, a passenger terminal and a lighting system.

The city of Jamba is in Kwando Kubango province, just north of the Caprivi strip, in Namibia. (macauhub)
