The central highland province of Gia Lai will invest more than VND2, 000 billion (US$900 million) to upgrade and expand the Pleiku Airport from 2020 - 2030.
This sum will be mobilized from state budgets, enterprises and BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) fund.
Nearly VND750 billion will be invested in the first stage of the construction.
According to the project, the airport will have a covered area of 5,000-7,000 square meters, with a full capacity of 500 passengers during rush hour and an extended runway to handle large planes.
The aircraft hangers will be able to contain four A321 planes at the same time.
