Quang Ninh Aiport Project

 Accordingly, the Prime Minister asked Quang Ninh provincial People’s Committee (PPC) to discuss with the Korea Airport Authorities Corporation, Joinus Vietnam Joint Stock Company and Posco E&C Join Stock Company to finalize a Build-Operation-Transfer (BOT) feasibility study and report for the project.

Quang Ninh Airport will be developed in Doan Ket Commune in Van Don District at a total estimated cost of VND5.1 trillion (US$244 million). The 285-hectare airport, will have runways 3,000m x 45m in size to allow the operation of long-range and wide-body Boeing 777s.

The construction will be carried out in two phases, with the first stage undertaken between now and 2020. By 2020, the airport will have at least four aprons and be able to handle 2 million passengers and 10,000 tonnes of goods per annum. By 2030, it will be expanded to have seven aprons, with the capacity to handle 5 million passengers and 30,000 tonnes per year. A separate 336,000sq.m-apron for military airlines will be built upon demand.

It is expected that the airport will help spur socio-economic growth in the province – a key economic hub in the northern region and home to World Heritage Ha Long Bay as well as many other landscapes./.
