Phu Bai attracts
flights from Cambodia, Laos, Japan and China which will have to use other
international airports.

Viet Nam’s Central
Airport Authority will oversee the repairs.

In 2020-30 it is
planned to increase the airport’s capacity to 4000 passengers an hour and to
receive 200,000 metric tonnes of goods and products a year.

By 2030 the airport
should be able to receive large aircraft such as the A320/A321, Boeing 767 and
Boeing 777-2002R.

The temporary closure
follows decision no 710/QD-BGTVT signed by Minister of Communications and
Transport Ho Nghia Dung.
