This work studies the potential impacts on air quality of an Agro Cargo Airport proposed for Southwestern Nigeria. An emission inventory was carried out for emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOX), particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbon (HC) taking into account emission sources characteristics. The resultant concentration on the host area of influence was determined using an ISC-AERMOD View Version 4.8. Combination of all the changes with the present status of air quality in the study area signifies the need for conscientious effort on air quality control in the proposed airport for environmental and health benefits during its operation.
