QUANG NAM (VNS) — The central province of Quang Nam will provide free bus transportation for air passengers between the province's capital of Tam Ky city to Chu Lai Airport this year.
The 30-km route will be served by a 24-seat bus making 11 trips per week for passengers travelling from Ha Noi and HCM City to Chu Lai Airport.
The route seeks to boost air travel from HCM City and Ha Noi to the Chu Lai Open Economic Zone in Quang Nam and Dung Quat Economic Zone in Quang Ngai Province.
The airport, which began operating in 2005, only allows landings by 50-seat ATR-72 aircraft and the Fokker 70. Future plans call for the airport to host 2.3 million passengers and 1.5 million tonnes of cargo by 2025.— VNS
