Maputo International Airport (IATA: MPM, ICAO: FQMA), also known as Lourenço Marques Airport, is an airport located 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) northwest of the center of Maputo, the largest city and capital of Mozambique. It is the largest airport in Mozambique, and hub for LAM Mozambique Airlines. Most destinations served from the airport are in Africa but TAP Portugal operates service to Lisbon, Portugal.

Expansion

A Chinese company has built a new cargo terminal, in what was the starting point of the first phase of a Chinese financed expansion project, with an initial estimated cost of US$75 million.. A new international terminal is already under construction, due to be completed in June and ready for use in August 2010. The new terminal has a capacity of 900,000 passengers a year, far from the 60,000 it could hold before. Originally, this modernization project had in mind to benefit from the 2010 FIFA World Cup held in neighboring South Africa, but it could not be finished in time. It will, however, be ready for the All Africa Games which are scheduled to be held in Maputo in 2011.

A second phase will entail the construction of a new domestic terminal where the current terminal stands. The project is experiencing a serious cost overrun, with the builder requesting and additional US$40 to 50 million to complete the work.
