Luanda — The ongoing construction, rehabilitation and modernisation process of the country's major airports and airfields was the top priority of the National Company of Exploration of Airports and Air Navigation (ENANA) in 2012.
The process is intended to grant dignity and comfort to the passengers and operators.
A particular reference goes to the Catumbela International Airport in the southern Benguela province.
The infrastructure was inaugurated on 27 August by the President of the Republic, José Eduardo dos Santos and has the capacity to accommodate 2.2 million passengers per year and it serves over 900 people per hour.
Meanwhile, other airports that deserved attention by ENANA and re-inaugurated in 2012 was those of Soyo in northern Zaire province, Uíge, Dundo (Lunda Norte), Saurimo (Lunda Sul), Luena (Moxico) and Kuito Kuanavale (Kuando Kubango), as well as domestic terminal of Luanda with capacity to serve over 2 million of passengers per year.
