In the first half of the year, Sékou-Touré airport in Conakry received nearly 313,000 passengers, around 13% more than during the same period in 2019, i.e. and volume higher than the authorities’ forecasts. But the new 20,000 m² terminal, whose work was to start in 2021, continues to be delayed. Co-shareholder of the airport manager, the investor Africa50 interviewed by Young Africa recognizes that “differences persist” and that the “uniqueness of viewpoints” necessary to start le project is currently lacking. On the Conakry side, on the other hand, the requirements are very clear.
