Building the future
Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, the only gateway for air access, plays a strategic role in the economic development of the country. Conscious of the challenges awaiting us, Airports of Mauritius Co. Ltd has embarked on several development projects, which aim at increasing the operating capacity and enhancing services.
Towards this end, AML is working in close collaboration with the different airport and off-airport operators to ensure a coherent and harmonized development of the airport. The construction of the new passenger terminal is well underway and the infrastructure should be operational by beginning of 2013. Furthermore, the Runway Overlay has been completed and the construction of a Parallel Taxiway cum emergency runway is progressing rapidly. The overlay project is essential to ensure the airport operations take place under optimal safety conditions. The new parallel taxiway has a strategic importance, as it will ensure that the airport operations can continue in case the main runway is closed, thus preventing the risk of the country being cut off from the world. The development of the Cargo and Freeport development zones is also high on the agenda to offer even more opportunities to stakeholders.
