Hungarian and Chinese investors plan to build an airport near the Hungarian city of Szombathely, close to the border with Austria, and turn it into a stopover for freight and passenger traffic bound for Western Europe by 2012, business daily Napi Gazdaság reported on Monday.

Shanghai International Airlines, Shanghai High Tech Park, Shanghai Construction Group and a Chinese investment fund would join Hungarian private investors as well as the state and local governments to build the airport as well as a technology park and logistics centre. The airport could handle an annual 250,000 passengers and 100,000-170,000 tons of freight. (MTI-Econews)
