Photos of the new Lungi airport which is reported to have been 75% completed are making rounds on social media.
It is reported that the new airport will be fully completed in February next year.
The new Airport project is a $270 Million Build Operate and Transfer Project between the SUMMA Group (a Turkish company) and the Government of Sierra Leone.
The project was conceived, planned, and developed by the Office of Presidential Infrastructure Initiative as one of the strategic flagship projects of the Government and it included the construction of a new passenger terminal, a new VIP/ Presidential terminal, a new Air traffic control tower, a new parallel taxiway, a new cargo terminal, a new search and rescue/fire fighting facility, a new car park, the restructuring and resurfacing of the existing runway, a new fuel farm and the establishment of a 1.5 mega watts solar farm.
“At the end of this project Sierra Leone will have a brand new airport with modern international facilities and services,” the Chairman of the Office of Presidential Infrastructure Initiative, Dr. Tambi stated.
