Minister of Trade and Tourism Henry Mussa: New Malawi airport to bring tourists directly to Lake Malawi

Mussa said the government was transforming air transport in the country further with plans to rehabilitate and upgrade two other airports.

He said the partnership is also needed to help in construction of modern airports at Likoma, Nyika National Park  and Blantyre to boost tourism as some of them are located in tourist destinations such as Likoma and Mangochi in the Northern and Eastern regions, respectively.

Mussa said the airports will come with high-standard hotels and transform tourism along Lake Malawi.

He said President Peter Mutharika wants to transform the country and they want serious investors who can partner government in the construction of modern airports.

“What we want is for tourists to travel from their destinations straight to lakeshore resorts. We think this is one way to boost tourism in the country,” he said.

Malawi continues to provide infrastructure such as access roads to more facilities to attract more tourists and facilitate tourism.
