South Korea may cancel plans for new international airport

South Korean government may cancel a plan to construct a new international airport in the country’s southeast on economic considerations (Yonhap, 28-Mar-2011). A special panel of civilian experts and policymakers under the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs reportedly reached the conclusion that Miryang and Gadeok Island are unsuitable. Others said that the government may propose instead to expand aircraft and passenger handling capabilities at Gimhae International Airport. The results of a review will be announced shortly.
