Work begins on new Mauritanian international airport

NOUAKCHOTT - Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz has laid the first stone for a new airport in Nouakchott which will be able to receive large carriers and some two million passengers a year.

The new airport will be built around 25 kilometres (15 miles) north of Nouakchott and will have two runways which can handle planes such as the Airbus A380 or Boeing 747, and two halls for travellers and freight.

"The current airport is stuck in the city centre, which reduces possibilities for development for future needs," Transport Minister Yahya Ould Hademine said during the stone-laying ceremony on Sunday.

Construction is expected to take two years.
