Authorities in the central province of Ha Tinh proposed the construction of an international airport that could serve flights to South Korea and Taiwan.

Chairman of the provincial people’s committee Tran Tien Hung on Thursday signed in the recommendation document sent to the Ministry of Transport and the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam.

Under the proposal, the airport would be located on a site of 300 to 450 hectares in Thach Ha and Cam Xuyen districts. It would own two runways stretching more than 1,800 metres and is expected to conduct flights to popular tourist destinations such as Hanoi, HCM City and Phu Quoc Island, as well as Pleiku and Buon Ma Thuot in the Central Highlands.

The airport would also provide flights to South Korea and Taiwan. Its total passenger capacity is hoped to reach 500,000 yearly by 2030 and the figure would rise to 2 million people by 2050.

According to Ha Tinh’s authorities, the project is feasible thanks to the abundant available land and suitable location which is some 10 kilometres from Ha Tinh City.
