Tanzania: Pemba Airport Up for Upgrading

A FEW days after laying foundation stone for the modern terminal building at the Abeid Amani Karume International Airport on Unguja Island, President Ali Mohamed Shein has promised to upgrade the current small airport in Pemba to international level. “Plans are underway to extend the runway, expand the airport, fix lights, and improve security to accommodate bigger planes from abroad,” Dr Shein said, adding that it will be possible for international flights to land directly in Pemba.
