Airports open to investors

Article - August 16, 2011
Tanzania has reached a stage where the private sector can play a key role in airports development
Covering an area more than twice the size of California, Tanzania, with its many opportunities for tourism and business development, requires a widespread and complementary transport network to better realize its potential.

The Tanzania Airports Authority (TAA) owns, develops and manages the 58 government airports on the mainland. Prosper Tesha, director general of TAA, welcomes more private sector involvement in upgrading airport infrastructure and proposes PPPs as the best way for investors to see returns more quickly while implementing the best in quality and service.

“Other than terminals and other facilities, the basic infrastructures that are needed in airports are the airside infrastructures such as the pavements, including the runways, taxiways and aprons, etc.; these are the most expensive yet most needed facilities,” he says. Airports offering top investment opportunities include JNIA, KIA, Mwanza, Arusha and Mtwara.
