Construction underway at two Madagascan airports

Construction works are underway for the public-private partnership concession of Ivato International Airport and Fascene Airport in Madagascar. Mott MacDonald is lenders’ technical advisor on the scheme.

The concession includes a new 17,500 sq m international terminal at Ivato International Airport in Antananarivo, which will have an initial capacity of 1.5 million passengers per annum. The airport’s existing terminal will also be renovated to handle increased domestic traffic, while the runway will be strengthened and resurfaced. Meanwhile, the runway and existing terminal building at Fascene Airport in Nosy Bé will be refurbished to support additional passenger numbers.

Mott MacDonald provided technical, environmental and social due diligence during the scheme’s financing stage, including developing a capital investment plan and undertaking environmental assessments. The consultancy also delivered the key contracts which helped form the structure of the transfer of risks and contingency measures. Mott MacDonald is currently monitoring construction in an ongoing role.

Adria Canals-Macia, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “This concession is a major opportunity for the Malagasy government to foster economic growth in the country, particularly by supporting a growing tourism industry.”

Construction works at Ivato Airport and Fascene Airport are expected to be completed in early 2020 and form part of a 28-year concession period.
