Avic International, the contractor engaged by Government to build the Copperbelt International Airport has moved on site and is ready to start works.

Government will spend Five Hundred and Twenty Two Million US dollars on the project.

Copperbelt Permanent Secretary Elias Kamanga has further disclosed that over four hundred households will be relocated from the area where the new airport will be constructed.

Mr. Kamanga says the process of verifying details of the 496 households to be displaced before they can be compensated and relocated to pave way for the works has started.

He has told a media briefing in Ndola that in the next ten days, officers from Cabinet Office will start verifying details of the affected households to be displaced.

The Copperbelt Permanent Secretary said once the new airport is constructed, it will re-position the Copperbelt and the country as a hub for air traffic in the region.

He revealed that one million passengers will be passing through the airport on an annual basis.

Among the facilities to be constructed at the facility include an air traffic tower, a five star hotel, a cargo terminal, a passenger terminal, a fire station and run way.

  1. where is it being constructed? in Chililabombwe, Kalulushi, Mufulira or Kitwe? A Report must not omit important aspects of a story. Three International Airports: Lusaka, Ndola and Copperbelt International Airport.

    • I am forced for the first time to respond to this dick sucking and anus licking prostitute calling herself Mushota, it is not in the blood of some of us to boast of what we are or what we have, only inchushi have that kind of behavior. How dare this dog insults us on the Copperbelt? This one is just an ***** pretending to be what she is not. It is such fools who when they buy a car on dot com think that they are rich and can compare with someone who drives a K2,000,000 or more car with 00000 mileage from the showroom. Moneni insekete nga Cobra.

  3. EXCELLENT. BUT IS THIS THE SIMON MWANSA KAPWEPWE OR SOMEONE HAS SUBOTAGED THE NAME OF KAPWEPWE? PEOPLE IN THE KNOW PLEASE THROW SOME LIGHT.
    HOWEVER, IT IS GOOD THAT THE IDEA/PLAN OF THIS AIRPORT IS FINALLY BEING IMPLEMENTED. THIS WILL IMPROVE TOURISM AND TRIGGER OTHER SECTORS OF DEVELOPMENT. BUT, AS I ALWAYS SAY, THERE WILL BE NEED TO HAVE ELECTRICAL TRAINS FROM SOLWEZI, LUANSHYA, KITWE, NDOLA AND OTHER OBVIOUS PLACES. ZAMBIA ALSO NEEDS A FLAG CARRIER WHICH THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT THROUGH THEIR CURRENT PRESIDENT HAS PROMISED.

  7. Ati near the Congo Border? Why near the Congo border? The Kopala is so big why not in Kalulushi which is 100% in Zambia if the Masaiti-Mpongwe area is too far? Security matters. I don’t trust Kongole people and rebels
