A new airport will be built in Kon Tum city in the central highland province of Kon Tum.
This was announced by the Ministry and Transport (MoT) and the Kon Tum provincial People’s Committee on June 10.
Under the MoT decision, the airport will cover an area of 162 ha in Ngoc Bay commune and will require a total investment capital of VND1,500 billion.
The announcement of the investment planning and preparations for the airport is significant for the province’s socioeconomic development and security.
Luu Thanh Binh, Director General of the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, said that the airport will link Kon Tum with other provinces across the country.
It is also a step to reinforce national defence and security, Binh said.
