On April 6, Quang Tri People's Committee said Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung also signed an official document approving the project and let them carry out the pre-feasibility study report. The Ministry of Transport will help determine the most suitable time frame to call for investment based on the air traffic development planning for the 2021-2030 period.

It will be a civil and military airport with a capacity of one million passengers and 3,100 tonnes of goods a year. The investment is around VND4.4trn (USD188m) and the estimated ground clearance cost is VND250bn. Quang Tri authorities said the ground clearance cost will come from the provincial budget and will be completed in 2021.

Quang Tri People's Committee proposed to start the airport project as a public-private partnership project. They already have a suitable plot of land and good infrastructure. Investors will be given preferential treatment to complete procedures as soon as possible.

According to Quang Tri People's Committee, Quang Tri Airport Project is an essential part of the country's transportation system and economic development plan. The province is in the central of Vietnam and on the East-West economic corridor.

Several investors have shown interests including T&T Group and FLC Group.

Last year, Quang Tri received 2 million visitors to historical sites like Quang Tri Citadel and La Vang Sanctuary.
