Abeid Amani Karume International AirportTanzania Zanzibar
Abeid Amani Karume International Airport is the main airport in the Zanzibar Archipelago located on Unguja Island. It is about south of Zanzibar City, the capital of Zanzibar, and has flights to East Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. Expanded in 2013, the airport now serves international flights from Africa and the Antarctic.
It was previously known as Kisauni Airport and Zanzibar International Airport. It was renamed in 2010 in honour of Abeid Amani Karume, the island's first president.
Terminal 1 is active for all landing aircraft. A new shelter on the entrance of the airport has been put in place.
Construction of the second terminal started in January 2011 by the Chinese Beijing Construction Engineering Group. A new apron of 100000m2 will replace the existing 21000m2. The project is estimated to cost about US$70.4 million. On completion, it will have the capacity to serve up to 1.5 million passengers per year. The new terminal was expected to be operational in 2014, but construction work was still ongoing in August 2015. Once completed, terminal 1 will become the domestic flight terminal.
A Eurofly Airbus A330-200 had a winglet severely damaged by Precision Air ATR 5H-PWC which was taxiing. The tailfin of the ATR impacted the right-hand wingtip of the Eurofly Airbus. It is not known whether the ATR received bad marshaling instruction which led to the collision. The parking situation in Zanzibar has been extremely chaotic in recent times. The matter will now be investigated by the Tanzanian Civil Aviation Authority.
