Luanda - Transport minister, Ricardo D'Abreu, Friday assessed the level of execution of the rehabilitation and modernisation works of some sectors of 4 de Fevereiro International Airport, with a view to improving security and other airport services.

The work is due to end in December of this year and will benefit passengers, with a larger space for receiving users, as well as ensuring greater traffic safety.

Ricardo D'Abreu, who toured the airport's various departments at length, began his visit at the facilities of the Sociedade Gestora de Aeroportos (SGA), where he discussed the certification process of the 4 de Fevereiro International Airport with the management.

Afterwards, the government official visited the cargo terminal (Teca 1), which is undergoing refurbishment and merging of warehouses, flooring, roofing and the entire technical network, with a view to storing (repairing) aircraft.

The Airport Fire Brigade was another venue that received the official, where structural work is underway as part of its refurbishment, which will include, as well as a service aircraft, an extension to the warehouse and workshops and a leisure area.

Work is underway on the airport runway to strengthen the pavement, treat and seal cracks and joints, as well as resurfacing, with the application of a new wearing course on the runway and berms measuring 2,500 x 45 metres.

With this intervention, on the runway, it will enable the safer operation of take-off, landing and rolling aircraft to eliminate previously existing unconformities.
