Harare International Airport is Zimbabwe's largest airport. Its international code (IATA code) is HRE. Its ICAO code is FVRG. It is the one that appears on your luggage labels when you take a flight to Zimbabwe.
It was in the late 1940s that the government of what was then Southern Rhodesia considered the construction of a new airport in Harare (then called Salisbury). The infractures at Belvedere airport had become unsuitable for the traffic of civil aircraft. In 1949, a land was purchased for this construction.
In 1951 the works were able to start and from September 1951 the first track was completed. All the works should have been completed in 1954 but it was finally on February 5, 1957 that the official opening to the traffic took place.
On November 9, 2017, Harare International Airport was named Robert Mugabe Airport in Harare in honor of the President and Heroe of Zimbabwe Independence.
