This large-scale project – to be launched early next year – is part of the Horn of Africa state’s national economic development plan, ‘Djibouti 2035’, and is intended to create a regional hub.
Equipped with a cargo terminal, the airport will serve as a location for both air and sea freight.
The hub, to be located in Bicidley, is around 60kms from the current Ambouli Airport and will handle 1.5 million passengers and 100,000 tonnes of freight annually.
