Pattaya, 5 April 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: At 5 a.m., the government has granted a new budget of 900 million Baht to renovate U-Tapao Airport, after 600 million Baht was withdrawn from the project in March this year.

The Chairman of Tourism and Recreation of Pattaya Council, Mr. Rattanachai Suthidechanai announces that the renovation has been resumed with the support of Mr. Athipon Kunpluem, the Mayor of Pattaya City, public and private sectors.
