Muan International Airport in South Korea said it is planning to expand its runway in a bid to accommodate large jumbo jets with a carrying capacity of more than 400 passengers.

The South Korean Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs said the expansion will improve the capacity of the airport to handle planes such as Boeing 747-400, according to bernama.com.

The single runway at the airport, which is 2,800m long and 45m wide, will be expanded by over 3,000m.

Once the expansion is complete, the airport will be able to handle large jets that are diverted due to bad weather from Incheon International Airport and Jeju International Airport.
