Emergency repairs make it necessary: The Civil Aviation Authorities in Malawi have announced the immediate closure of Chileka International Airport in Blantyre while emergency repairs to the main runway are carried out.

The airport has been closed without notice on Sunday 16th March as the appearance of potholes on the main runway raised the authorities' concerns about possible damage under the runway surface following recent heavy rains in the area.  

It was deemed unsafe for larger commercial aircraft to operate until repairs could be carried out.
