On 3rd June 2021, Egis and Aéroport de Paris Ingénierie (ADPI) signed a memorandum of understanding with the Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority for the development of new airport capacity in Djibouti, East Africa.
Egis and ADPI will conduct the project feasibility study, develop the airport master plan and development programme, and set up a financial plan for the new infrastructure.
The signing ceremony took place in the presence of the French Ambassador to Djibouti Arnaud Guillois, Egis Airport Director Mongi Djouba, and other institutional representatives.
There are two goals to the project, firstly to support tourism growth in the region; and secondly to develop true multimodal synergy between air and sea transport with the construction of a cargo terminal that handles 100,000 tons of air freight per year. Passenger capacity will be 1.5 million passengers per year.
