According to Minister The, Cat Bi terminals, aprons and taxiways do not meet development requirements so it is necessary to be upgraded.
He asked relevant agencies to review the airport’s plan and suggested Vietnam Aviation Corporation and VietJet Aviation Joint Stock Company to propose the policy of building some works in the airport within 15 days for consideration and estimation.
Deputy chairman of Hai Phong city People’s Committee Nguyen Xuan Binh said that the city would take responsibility for site clearance and making a proposal to choose investors for the project.
In addition, he suggested the Ministry of Transport and relevant agencies to continue assisting Hai Phong city to develop traffic infrastructure including Cat Bi airport.
