Completion of KK Airport to delay

Ministry of Housing and Infrastructure says completion of the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport may delay due to some minor construction works that have not yet commenced.
Speaking in an interview with Money FM News, Ministry Permanente Secretary Charles Mushota said the terminal was supposed to be completed by October this year but that it may delay further.
Mr. Mushota said the contractor has started working on the interior finishers at the airport.
He said he travelled to France early this year to consult an interior designer who confirmed what kind of materials to be used and how the interior of the airport would look like.
Mr. Mushota added that the acoustic of the facility has been approved, adding that a Zambian team is expected to travel to Chine and visit the factories where the facilities are manufactured.
The Permanente Secretary added that the contractor is also working on connection between on the new terminal and the old terminal building.
“You may be aware that once the new terminal building is in operational, we are going to close the old airport for refurbishment,” he said.
Mr. Mushota said construction works for the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport and the Copperbelt Airport is progressing well.
Mr. Mushota said construction works of the Copperbelt Airport is on schedule.
