The Can Tho International Airport

 

Dung announced the information at a meeting on February 22 to discuss solutions to promote the operation of Can Tho International Airport.

It is scheduled that the budget carrier Vietjet Air will launch four domestic routes from Can Tho – Hai Phong, Can Tho – Vinh, Can Tho – Da Lat, and Can Tho – Tho Xuan (Thanh Hoa) between March and May this year.

Meanwhile, the Malaysian budget carrier Air Asia will operate two international routes connecting Can Tho with Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok.

In addition, the newly established Vietnamese carrier Bamboo Airway will open a route linking Can Tho with Hanoi with one flight per day.

According to the Director of the Can Tho Department of Transport, Can Tho International Airport began operation in 2011 with the capacity of receiving 3 million passengers per year but the airport has reached less than half of its capacity and currently only has domestic routes.

Dung also suggested that the Can Tho authorities put forth measures to promote new air routes and diversify tourism products and services to effectively exploit the air routes and boost tourism.

Can Tho airport received 815,000 passengers in 2018, up 20% compared to 2017 and reaching 40% of its designed capacity.
