Freetown is separated from Lungi airport by sea, and a variety of
different modes of transport are involved in airport transfers. This
report provides a list of seven water, air, and road companies currently
involved in airport transfer, together with a list of the five shipping
companies planning to be involved. An analysis of their shareholders,
organization, and financial and technical structure is given based on
interviews conducted in Sierra Leone and collection of information from
local internet journals. Risks to the project are examined under the
headings Competition and Sustainability, Safety, Infrastructure Issues,
and ICF (Investment Climate Facility for Africa) Funding.
