Antananarivo airport: Antananarivo Ivato International Airport (TNR)

Antananarivo Ivato International Airport

At present, the airport of Antananarivo, Madagascar's capital, is still relatively simple. There are plans to expand and renew the airport considerably, also to allow for the Airbus A380. The renovations will be completed in 2020. That's the plan at least, but in Africa the execution of plans can sometimes take a bit longer.
