The Mozambiquan Government plans to complete a $75m upgrade to Maputo International Airport (MPM) before the start of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

The upgrade will accommodate approximately 900,000 passengers a year and involves modernising, expanding and improving security and the airport’s runway.

The project also includes construction of a new cargo terminal, an international passenger terminal, a domestic terminal, an international aircraft parking area, a control tower and a presidential VIP building.

China-based contractor Anhui Foreign Economic Construction Corporation (AFECC) will be overseeing the total refurbishment, which has been funded by China’s Exim Bank.

The project is scheduled to be complete before May 2010.
