Msalato International Airport (Swahili: Uwanja wa Ndege wa Kimataifa wa Msalato) (IATA: n/a, ICAO: n/a), is a proposed international airport project intended to serve the Tanzanian capital city of Dodoma located in Dodoma Region.

Location

The planned airport would be located in Msalato Ward, approximately 14 kilometres (9 mi), by road, north of the central business district of the city of Dodoma.[2][3] The airport would occupy 45 square kilometres (17 sq mi) of real estate.

Overview

Dodoma Airport, which serves the capital is located within the municipality and cannot accommodate larger aircraft. Due to the location of Dodoma Airport, it cannot be expanded easily. The government of Tanzania plans to construct an intentional airport in Msalato, to handle large passenger and cargo aircraft to carry politicians, diplomats, tourists and businesspeople together with their luggage.
