Phase 1 aims to allow the accommodation of B737-800 long-haul type of planes and includes:

  • Lengthening the runway from 1,900 to 2,600 m + repair of the aeronautical areas;
  • Construction of a new 5,600 sqm terminal (Requiring the demolition of the existing terminal and Presidential Pavilion, as well as the construction of a temporary 1,000 sqm terminal during the construction works to ensure the continuity of service);
  • Construction of a new Presidential Pavilion (700 sqm) with dedicated aeronautical areas and the associated road network;
  • Construction of roads and associated utilities on the city side (including a car park);
  • Construction of a boundary fence and a path for patrols around the airport in order to meet OACI requirements concerning the security of airport facilities.


The dual objective of the rehabilitation and extension program for Port-Gentil Airport is to meet the demand for international flights and to develop regional economic activity. The Gabonese government and all of the region's economic players wish to have a runway and a modern, international terminal capable of accommodating long-haul flights.
