Airport Feasibility Study Underway In Zimbabwe


Zimbabwe’s transport ministry has announced that plans to build a new airport in the Mutasa South district of Manicaland province have reached an advanced stage, with Airports Company of Zimbabwe (ACZ) set to conduct a feasibility study on the approved site.
The update was provided following an inspection tour of the site by ministry officials and heads of the local authorities.
The site has been selected as there is sufficient flat land to accommodate a modern commercial airport.

Local publication The Herald reported ACZ CEO Tawanda Gusha as saying that the feasibility study is due to be completed and submitted to the ministry before the end of the year, along with the design brief.
It further states that the proposed site is about 26km from the city of Mutare and the new airport will support the development of the province’s economy including the tourism and minerals sectors.
The development of the new airport is expected to be carried out as a public-private partnership.
It is understood the airport will replace the existing Grand Reef aerodrome, which is operated under the Zimbabwe National Army and is one of two airfields serving the region.
In April 2022, the local Eastern Times reported that the Grand Reef aerodrome was also set to undergo a US$40 million refurbishment to extend the 1,250-metre runway and add a terminal building and control tower.
Zimbabwe is looking to build a US$5 billion tourism economy by 2025. It has already completed the upgrading and modernisation of its two major airports, the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International airport (RGMIA) in Harare and Victoria Falls International airport in partnership with China.
