QĐND – Wednesday, July 28, 2010, 21:22 (GMT+7)

The Southern Airports Corporation (SAC) and Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV) on July 27 held a workshop in Ho Chi Minh City to seek international flights to three new airports in the southern regions.

Representatives from travel and tourism businesses as well as domestic and international airlines were introduced to incentive policies reserved for Phu Quoc airport in the southern province of Kien Giang, Lien Khuong in the southern province of Lam Dong and Can Tho in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho.

Nguyen Nguyen Hung, General Director of SAC said that by 2012, a total of 8 trillion VND will be invested in the three airports.

The Lien Khuong international airport was put into operation last December and is forecast to be able to serve 580 domestic and 250 international passengers at peak hour by 2020.

Meanwhile, the Can Tho airport is scheduled to open in December this year and the Phu Quoc airport in 2012.

As part of the incentives, foreign visitors arrive at Phu Quoc airport will be given visa-exemption for a 15-day stay.

According to Lai Xuan Thanh, deputy head of CAAV, Vietnam has been working to facilitate the operation of international airlines in the country such as easing regulations through bilateral and multilateral agreements and offering 50 percent discount for airport services.
