Hai Phong (VNA) – Flight operations at a taxiway of Cat Bi International Airport in the northern city of Hai Phong have been suspended on June 14 and 15 for repairs.

Taxiway N is closed from 0:01 am to 6 am on the two days, to have subsided ground and cracked surfaces repaired.

While the repair work is being carried out, Cat Bi airport will not handle flights, except for emergency cases.

On May 28, the airport was also closed for repairs because the abnormally hot weather had peeled off a piece of asphalt from a runway.

Cat Bi became an international airport in mid-May after more than two years of upgrading.

It is designed to serve 4 million passengers a year and accommodate large airplanes such as Boeing 747’s and Boeing 777’s.-VNA
