The Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has announced plans to upgrade parts of the Kigali International Airport (KIA).

The $14m project involves building more airport facilities including escalators and lifts, the extension and separation of terminals for departure and arrival as well as adding a new business class lounge.

CAA is also planning to add eight new check-in desks and install a new baggage belt to handle 150 bags per unit time, up from 80 bags.

The airport authority also intends to construct a parking area for two large-bodied aircrafts with the capacity to carry over 100 passengers.

UK-based TPS has submitted bids for carrying out the project and the tender process is expected to continue for another three months.

The government-funded project comes ahead of the proposed construction of new airport Bugesera International, which will be located in the Eastern Province, according to The New Times.
