Bamyan Airport to expand

Work on Bamyan’s expansion project, including the construction of a 2km runway and a boundary wall, was launched in Bamyan on Wednesday.

Funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the project’s cost is USD 15mn.

The airport is currently used by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), USAID and United Nations. After the completion of the project, which is in a year, private airlines would also use the facility, said Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Daud Ali Najafi.

Bamyan traders are faced with problems on the highway mainly caused by insecurity. The improvement of the airport would be a better alternative for the traders to transfer their goods outside of the province.
