The rehabilitation and expansion of the existing runway and taxiway will help accommodate larger planes, including business class, turbo props, and light jets. The construction of a new apron space will increase the parking area and allow for heavier aircrafts to be parked.

A new hangar access road will reduce the use of taxiways by vehicle traffic. Improvements also include the installation of additional runway, taxiway and approach lights.
