Spokesperson for the ministry of Transport and Public Works James Chakwera said the government will officially clear the big planes to land after November 30.

“All the major rehabilitation works are almost complete now and we expect the airliners that suspended their landing at their airport to resume after November 30,” he said.

South African Airways is one of the major airliners which suspended flights of its planes to Chileka airport.

Can we improve on signage. Why do we have signs that are so common and un attractive. Remove all kanyenya sellers next to the airport, this is a window to our nation. Plan developing that whole area next to the airport to contemporary surrounding. Right now it’s misika all the way. Abale inu
