Taipei, Dec. 24 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou officiated Thursday at a 65940819ceremony to mark the reopening of the north runway at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport after a nine-month overhaul.

Ma praised all relevant parties for their contributions to the project, which is expected to greatly ease air traffic congestion at the airport.

The ceremony culminated with the first takeoff from the refurbished runway. China Airlines flight CI-160, carrying 369 passengers, was bound for Seoul, according to the company.

Noting that the north and south runways at the airport have both returned to operational status this year, Ma said it was not an easy achievement.
