Mauritius’ new airport terminal to be ready by 2013
Mauritius’ new Rs 11 billion international terminal at SSR International Airport is currently under construction and should be operational by early 2013.
According to Prime Minister Dr Navin Ramgoolam, this new terminal will have many aims once it opens including positioning it as a hub in the region and doubling the current airport capacity.
In line with the concept “Maurice, Ile Durable”, Dr Navin Ramgoolam, also stressed the environmental and ecological dimensions of the project such as the use of solar energy collected by photovoltaic cells, recovering rain water and integrating nature to the heart of the building.
The new terminal which will make provisions for future developments will be connected to the existing one and will have a capacity of four million passengers with 1640 passengers leaving at peak hours. It will have an exceptional contact rate with five new additional plane stations to the existing three and fourteen planes in motion, landing and taking off, during peak time.
The new terminal will ally modernity, functionality, high standard of service and meet all the security standards of the best international airports globally.
