At the groundbreaking ceremony, Deputy Minister of Transport Le Anh Tuan said that from 2017 up to now, due to having to operate beyond the design frequency, receiving many new generation aircraft with large loads, the runways have been damaged.

`If not renovated and upgraded promptly, flight operations may have to be stopped,` Mr. Le Anh Tuan said.

In addition, the existing runway and taxiway systems at the two airports cannot meet the operating demand by 2025 of 44 million passengers/year at Noi Bai and 50 million passengers at Tan Son Nhat airport.

Directing at the groundbreaking ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh said Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat are the country’s two main airports, two runway renovation projects are very necessary, contributing to the development of the aviation industry.

Government leaders and the Ministry of Transport encouraged workers to participate in the project.

The Deputy Prime Minister requested the Ministry of Transport and related units to develop a scientific plan for operating the two airports, ensuring security and safety, especially taking into account backup plans in case of emergency situations.

To accommodate repair work, one of the two runways at these airports will be closed.

However, Mr. Thang said, such flight frequency does not have much impact on domestic passengers because the number of international passengers is currently non-existent.
