I read the construction started last fall (October IIRC). It's a shame they are allowed to build new airports when they have a genocide taking place.

Excellent video. Thanks for the link.

It looks like more airport than they will need for a while, but its great to have vision and provide for future needs. Is this just a proposal or is it a done deal?

If this is going to be the KRT airport it is a huge step forward for the airport. Right now it is way to constrained and cannot grow anywhere. It is now right now smack in the middle of a built up area which isn't really good and does not really give a nice presentation of the country to any visitor, with the current Darfur situation cannot imaging people going there on leisure. But still a nice airport can give a good first impression of a country.
Zanair flight, please hold on finals as we have to clear rhino's off the runway. Next flight KUL-FRA-AMS Flown in A319,A
