Aéroport de Dzaoudzi-Pamandzi
|Elevation AMSL||23 ft / 7 m|
Dzaoudzi-Pamandzi International Airport (IATA: DZA, ICAO: FMCZ) is an airport located in Dzaoudzi, Mayotte, France on the southern tip of the island of Petite-Terre (or Pamanzi), located east of Grande-Terre, the main island of Mayotte. It is the only airport in Mayotte with scheduled services, mainly to destinations within Africa and to metropolitan France. The airport services aircraft up to the Boeing 777 in size.
A new runway (15/33) to the west of the current runway is being planned and will be 2,600 metres in length to accommodate larger aircraft, such as the Airbus A380 and Boeing 747 in size. Once built the older runway will become a taxiway. There are also plans for a new terminal to be built (and likely replace the current departure and arrival buildings). This project will be completed by 2015.[needs update]
