Can Tho Airport Facts
The airport was inaugurated very recently in the year 2010 by the prime minister and is considered to be the most important airport in the entire Vietnam in terms of infrastructure development and handling international passengers. The airport is owned by the Southern airport corporation and expects to meet the increasing demand for the air transport within the region. The airport has been upgraded to receive both domestic and international flights and has the capacity to handle about 5 million passengers and cargo of 5,000 tonnes capacity per year. The runways at the airport have been facilitated to handle long haul jets such as the Boeing 777 and 747 and thus relate much better with international passengers.
Arrival and departure
The international airport is expected to serve as the transit hub to serve domestic flights from Can Tho to other Vietnam cities such as Hanoi, Hue, Danang and Nha Trang for the economic development of the Mekong Delta. Can Tho is in fact the hub of commercial services, education and training and science and technology services and thus needs to connect tech savvy population and students from across the world to Can Tho which thus would be satisfied by the rich domestic and international flight network at the airport.
