Bangladesh said it will build a new international airport at the cost of 500bn taka (US$7bn) to cater for air traffic growth.

The Bangabandhu International Airport will be developed on a 6,000-acre site, located 100km north of Dhaka, according to thenews.com.pk.

The Civil Aviation Authority has completed the pre-feasibility study of the airport, which will include two runways and will be equal in size to Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand.

The Bangladesh cabinet approved the airport saying it would help the nation to cater for increased traffic over the next five to six years, as demand continued to rise.

The government plans to hire foreign consultants for the project by the end of 2010, with construction to begin in 2011.
