Italian construction company Salini has won the contract to upgrade Kufra International Airport, according to Libya Herald.
The contract to re-build of the airport’s main runway, the parallel driveway and the side driveways as well as the aircraft taxiing area and the airport’s lighting system, was originally signed in 2010 under the former regime.
The company is supposed to start work at the airport by the end of this month, and is expected to be finished within twenty months.
Kufra International Airport received its first Libyan Airlines flight from Tripoli on 5th July, after a nine year suspension of flights.
