Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport (IATA: LVI, ICAO: FLHN), formerly Livingstone Airport (ICAO: FLLI), is an international airport on the northern edge of Livingstone, Zambia. The airport is named after Harry Mwanga Nkumbula, who was a leader of the Zambian African National Congress.
The airport is located in the north-western suburbs of the city of Livingstone, approximately 5 kilometres (3 mi), by road, from downtown. The airport sits at 3,255 feet (992 m) above mean sea level.
Constructed in 1950, as a domestic airport, it became an international destination due to its proximity to the Victoria Falls, only 15 kilometres (9 mi) to the south, by road. Between 2011 and 2017, the government-owned Zambia Airports Corporation Limited (ZACL), which operates the airport, renovated and improved the airport infrastructure and facilities.
The renovations included (a) a new terminal building (b) a new main runway (c) a new apron and (d) new apron lights. The previous airport had capacity to handle a maximum of 250,000 passengers a year. The new airport can handle anywhere from 700,000 to one million passengers a year. In 2019, 175,000 passengers passed through the airport
