Japan prepares to upgrade Malawi ATC

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) plans to rehabilitate the Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) in Malawi arguing that the current ATC equipment does not meet international standards.

JICA country representative Kazuhiko Tokuhashi said Japan is to rehabilitate ATC equipment using funds amounting to US$33 million.

“JICA provided this equipment over 30 years ago, and there is need to replace the machine to ensure that there is safety in this country,” said Tokuhashi.

The rehabilitation project at KIA which is expected to take thirty months will help in addressing communication challenges with European air traffic.
