"That runway will be closed between 1 a.m. and 8 a.m. during the upgrade process, so all airlines will need to reschedule services with early morning departure times," daily newspaper Tuoi Tre (Youth) quoted a representative from local airline Jetstar Pacific as saying.
According to local aviation expert Nguyen Thien Tong, to make up overrun costs, airlines may have to lift ticket prices. ■
