Angolan airport manager Empresa Nacional de Exploração de Aeroportos e Navegação Aérea (ENANA) has awarded the China Railway 20th Construction Bureau (CR20) the contract to rebuild and expand Kuito Airport, in the central province of Bié, Enana said in a statement published in Luanda.

ENANA also said that the contract signed with CR20 is intended to build, within 12 months, a modern passenger terminal with service areas and an equipment system to comfortably accommodate about 300 passengers.

“The intervention includes construction of the passenger terminal, the operations building and control tower with 4,500 square metres, in addition to upgrading the passenger building, power station, access to the airport, the car park and the cargo terminal,” the statement said.

The China Railway 20th Bureau was founded in 1948, when it was called 10th Division of the Railway Unit of the People’s Liberation Army, and now listed on the Fortune 500 as a 100-percent controlled subsidiary of the China Railway Construction Corporation Limited group. (macauhub/AO/CN)
