This international airport has several names; one is Antananarivo due to its proximity to the town, the other name is Ivato. This place will go through a series of changes in order to receive even more passengers every year. By the end of 2020, Antananarivo will have had two runways, a new and extended terminal, a car park and not to mention three jetways.
The most important runway of the two will go through modifications, being extended as well. Madagascar has invested a lot of money in this project. The two terminals are designated for both international and domestic flights. There are a lot of facilities which you can use when spending time at this airport. If you find yourself in between flights you won`t get bored that easily, you can do plenty of things to keep yourself busy till your plane lands.
If you have always been curious about the traditional dishes in Madagascar you can grab a bite and see for yourself if you enjoy the cuisine or not. There are indoor as well as outdoor restaurants which you can choose from. There are currency exchange bureaus if you urgently need to use this service. If you need to let your family and friends know that you have arrived safely at the airport or if you need to look up some important piece of information on the internet you can use the Aerocyber found here.
