FLC wants to upgrade Dong Hoi Airport

The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC – Vietnam’s property developer FLC Group has expressed its interest in upgrading Dong

Hoi Airport in the central province of Quang Binh under the build-operate-transfer format, VnEconomy news website VnEconomy reports.

The group has sent a relevant proposal to the Ministry of Transport, the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, and the government of Quang Binh Province.

The Government has asked the Ministry of Transport to consider a master plan for upgrading the airport so that it can receive bigger aircraft and meet higher air travel demand.

If approval is forthcoming, FLC Group would strictly go through the investment and operation procedures in line with the prevailing regulations, the company said in its proposal.

FLC signed a memorandum of understanding with Airbus late last month to purchase 24 A321neo aircraft for its startup carrier Bamboo Airways.

Bamboo Airways is expected to begin operation late this year with aircraft to be leased from third party lessors before taking delivery of the aircraft under the deal with Airbus.

The airline will focus on bringing domestic and international tourists to some of the nation’s increasingly popular destinations such as Quy Nhon, Quang Ninh, Haiphong, Thanh Hoa and Quang Binh.

After its upgrade, the airport would help create thousands of jobs for locals and fuel tourism growth.
