According to Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), in 2018, local airports welcomed 104 million passengers, up 10.4% on-year.
The Vietnamese aviation transportation sector has been predicted to top the group of countries with more than 50 million passengers per year in the 2016-2040 period. The growth has continued as more domestic and international flights have been launched.
ACV has planned to boost investment and upgrade of airport infrastructure in the coming time, focusing on major hubs such as Long Thanh International Airport in Dong Nai Province.
Noi Bai, Tan Son Nhat, Danang, Cam Ranh, Cat Bi, Vinh and Phu Bai airports are all expanding capacity. ACV has prepared the construction of Terminal 3 at Tan Son Nhat International Airport along with international terminals at Danang and Cam Ranh airports.
Airport Operations Control Centres at Noi Bai, Tan Son Nhat, Danang and Cam Ranh will be set up.
