The government of Laos agreed to spend an USD 80 million to build a new airport for the fast growing and bustling tourism hub of Northern Laos: Luang Prabang – one of the two UNESCO World Heritage listed sites of the country.

The construction on the new airport will begin at the end of this year. Work will commence until 2012. The new 2’800 meters long and 45 meters wide runway is laid out to accommodate also for larger aircrafts. The estimated costs for the runway are USD 100 million.

Once the new airport is up and running he will replace the existing one. The investment for the new airport building as well as the larger runway is provided by the Export-Import Bank of China.
