Background of SLAA

SLAA, which was established by the SLAA Act No. 8 of 1988, is wholly owned by GoSL. The Act enables SLAA to operate and manage the Freetown International Airport and levy user charges for the purpose of generating revenue to sustain the commercial nature of its operations. Currently, there are eight scheduled international airline operators using the airport. Average annual aircraft movements for the airport including both schedule and unscheduled flights for the period 2003 to 2007 are 2,860. Average annual passenger throughput for the same period is 128,729 and average cargo throughput per annum is 1,690,641 Kgs. Additional traffic is generated by domestic users, non-scheduled traffic, helicopter services operating between Lungi and Freetown and by UN flights.

Freetown International Airport is the only gateway airport of Sierra Leone. The Airport is situated at Lungi, on the Bullom Peninsular, which is about 13.5 Km by road from the ferry terminal at Targrin point. Targrin point is separated from the Freetown Peninsular by a body of water that is five nautical miles at its narrowest point at Kissy Dockyard in Freetown. The ferry takes about 45 minutes between the Targrin point and the Kissy ferry terminal. Alternative means of accessing the airport from the city of Freetown are by helicopter shuttle service, hovercraft or by road.

The World Bank, under the Infrastructure Development Project (IDP) is funding a programme for the rehabilitation of infrastructure and equipment at the Freetown International Airport. The rehabilitation programme entails the resurfacing of the runway, including the widening of the runway turning loops and taxiways; Improvement to the electricity and water supplies, and; replacement of navigational aids and control tower communications equipment. These rehabilitations and upgrades are aimed at attracting additional traffic at the airport.
