Vietnam to have 28 airports by 2030

VOV.VN - Vietnam is set to have a total of 28 domestic and international airports nationwide by 2030 that will have a design capacity of serving 278 million passengers annually.

Half of the total will be international terminals, according to a recently approved master plan on the national airport network towards 2030 and a vision ahead to 2050.

Experts of the appraisal council agreed to go ahead with a plan to build Hai Phong International Airport to replace the current Cat Bi Airport by 2030 which has been approved by the Prime Minister.

They also suggested that feasibility studies for new airports on Ly Son island in the central coastal province of Quang Ngai and Phu Quy island in the south central province of Binh Thuan be conducted and submitted to the Prime Minister for consideration.

The plan regarding seeking locations for a second airport in Hanoi will also be studied after 2030.

The appraisal council also agreed with a plan to expand Hanoi-based Noi Bai International Airport to make it capable of serving 100 million passengers per year by 2050.

The council noted that, besides Cao Bang Airport, Vietnam should have more airports in some localities that have great demand for tourists, such as the northern mountainous  province of Ha Giang, in order to meet the country’s socio-economic development strategy.
