Under the proposed plan, the 28 airports, haft of which international airports, will be able to serve nearly 280 million passengers to ensure that more than 95% of the population can access an airport within a distance of 100km.

More than 17 billion USD will be needed to develop the airport system until 2030.

For new airports, public-private partnership will be preferred, except for those of national significance and strategic military and security importance as well as those in border and island areas, which will be invested by state capital.
