The Palestinian Civil Aviation Authority has announced that it will soon start the construction of an international airport between Jerusalem and Jericho.

The Palestine International Airport will be constructed on a 4km² plot of West Bank land at an investment of €244m ($340m).

Palestinian minister of transportation Sa’di al-Kurunz said work would begin on the plot in the first half of 2011.

To meet international standards, the airport will include a single terminal, six boarding gates and a car park, and handle both passengers and cargo.

Construction will be complete within two years if international donors provide the finance for the project, according to irishtimes.com.
