(Ecofin Agency) - In 2019, the Antananarivo airport welcomed over 1 million passengers while the Nosy Be airport, Madagascar's second-largest airport, handled 216,000.
According to Ravinala Airports, which manages Madagascar's main airports, “these figures are historic in the Malagasy aeronautical field, first time in 20 years.”
By increasing the frequentation of the country's two main airports, Ravinala has enabled the international airport of Antananarivo to win the “Routes Africa Award 2019,” a prize that rewards development efforts and marketing in airport management on the continent.
Since being awarded the management of Madagascar's main gateway in December 2016, Ravinala Airports has created nearly a thousand direct and indirect jobs. The firm has also built a new international terminal. This has enabled traffic to grow by 8% in 2019. The terminal will be inaugurated in the course of this year 2020 and Antananarivo Airport will launch the process for ISO 9001 and 14001 certification.
Let’s note Ravinala Airports has been chosen to host the 5th edition of AviaDev Africa from 6 to 8 May 2020.
