Victoria Falls International Airport in Pictures

In 2015, upgrades on the Victoria Falls International Airport began. The project's aim was to build a new and larger terminal building than the existing one at the time, construct a new 4km long runway, revamp the domestic terminal, build a new control tower and fire station.

Although there have been delays here and there, the internationals terminal is now in use, although the project is not 100% complete. The official opening of the airport is scheduled for April of this year.

Below are some pictures of the construction and newer images of some of the completed sections.
