HÀ NỘI — The Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) is developing a plan to widen Tuy Hòa Airport and build a new terminal with a capacity of 2.5 million passengers per year in the period 2020-25.
Last year more than 337,000 passengers arrived at Tuy Hòa Airport, equaling 61 per cent of its present capacity.
By 2020, the capacity of Tuy Hòa Airport will reach 600,000 passengers per year, and by 2030 will be 3 million per year, according to the scheme to develop airway transport by 2020, which has been approved by Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc.
The Ministry of Transport gave instructions to ACV to inspect and adjust the plan for different airports so that it is in accordance with what was approved by the PM.
Lê Mạnh Hùng, director of ACV, said that at present, the corporation was invested in different works including ensuring flight safety, night lights and the air traffic control tower to improve Tuy Hòa Airport’s effectiveness.
At present three airlines access the airport with a frequency of 25 flights per route per week on Hà Nội-Tuy Hòa, HCM City-Tuy Hòa and vice versa. — VNS
