Runway upgrade sought for major airports The Ministry of Transport has requested Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) to draw up plans to better manage and upgrade runways at Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat international airports to ensure safety and more operation efficiency at the country’s busiest airports. The ministry made the request following a suggestion by the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) to upgrade runways at Noi Bai in Hanoi and Tan Son Nhat in HCMC, the Vietnam News Agency reported. In its proposal, CAAV said the runways at the two airports have been used since 1960s, so it is not good for them to accommodate the world’s most modern aircraft such as Airbus A350-900s and Boeing B787-9s. CAAV said as there are signs of deterioration on Runway 11L/29R at Noi Bai and Runway 25R/07L at Tan Son Nhat, they should be facelifted soon to help increase the efficiency of the two airports. Since 2015, the aviation watchdog has several times urged ACV to map out plans to revamp the runways to facilitate aircraft take-offs and landings at Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat airports. However, the corporation said it had no such plans in the offing. Railway…
