      Entebbe International Airport is the main gateway to Kampala and the rest of Uganda. The airport is located near the town of Entebbe which is situated on the shores of Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa. In addition to that, Entebbe airport is located at a distance of 35 kms from Kampala.


      Today, Entebbe International Airport expansion project is estimated at over sh713b (over $200m) which involves construction of a new cargo terminal, oil firm and strengthening of aero planes runway.


      The Minister for Works and Transport, Monica Azuba Ntege, professes she is really impressed by the progress of the ongoing expansion and upgrade of Entebbe International Airport. The project, which stands at 28% progress, is being worked on by China Communications Construction Company (CCCC). Works started in May last year.

      Entebbe International Airport expansion project aims at increasing more arrivals, cargo and will boost the country economically in areas such as tourism. During the field tour of the ongoing works at the airport last month in October, 2017, Azuba noted that the mega project is indeed a face of the country as well as China Communications Construction Company (CCCC).

      She said the project will be complete by 2021 and she was optimistic that the cost of tickets will go down.

      One of the things China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) is doing is to increase the capacity of the cargo center and planes carrying cargo will be directly going there. Near cargo Center, there’s a fuel firm which is going to be established.


      What about in your own country region? How big is the biggest Airport? How has China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) impacted on your country's mobility infrastructure?
