Guinea-Conakry Airport

The International Airport in Maferinya, about 60 km from Conakry, seeks to make good the shortfall in the provision of the current Conakry-Gbessia airport in response to growing air traffic. Thus, the recommendation is for an area of approximately 7 000 ha which, in addition to the airport, also provides areas for public facilities, industry, residential areas and green spaces, where sustainability, technology and functionality are combined.
