New Vietnam international airport welcomes first passenger flight

A Vietnam Airlines Airbus A321 carrying Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and government officials made the first touchdown at the Van Don International Airport near the world-famous Ha Long Bay on Sunday (30/12/18) morning, marking the opening of the first private airport in Vietnam.

Construction of the airport, 50 kilometers away from Ha Long Bay in the northern province of Quang Ninh, began in 2015.

The 325-hectare (803 acres) airport, owned by real estate giant Sun Group, costs VND7.7 trillion ($330 million) and can handle 2.5 million passengers a year equivalent to 1,250 passengers per hour. Its parking bay will have place for at least four aircraft by 2020 and seven by 2030.
