Quang Tri plans to build airport through PPP

Authorities in central Quang Tri Province have initiated moves to build Quang Tri Airport through a public-private-partnership (PPP).

The People’s Committee of Quang Tri asked the Ministry of Transport (MoT) for permission to conduct a study and file a proposal for investment projects to build the airport through a cooperative agreement between the public and private sectors.

The chairman of the committee, Nguyen Duc Chinh, also wanted the MoT to allow the locality to update some tasks in the detailed planning dossier of Quang Tri Airport, particularly the forecast of transport demand and divergent investment period in line with planning on the transportation and traffic development of Viet Nam’s aviation sector. These serve as the basis for the call for investors to participate in the project and determine the route and suitable time for investment in accordance with plans to operate Quang Tri Airport after 2020.

Quang Tri Province will allocate a part of its provincial budget, exploit its build and transfer form, and call for investors to participate in the establishment of the airport, Chinh said.

According to Decision No. 236/QD-TTg of the Prime Minister approving the adjustment of planning on air transport in the 2020-30 period, Quang Tri is one of 28 domestic airports which will be put into operation between 2020 and 2030. The airport will span an area of 312ha.

Quang Tri Airport is located in Gio Quang Commune, Gio Linh District, in a relatively untouched area of forest trees and without residential areas and cultivated fields.

The airport is about 93km from Dong Hoi National Highway 1 and 88km away from Phu Bai International Airport in Thua Thien - Hue Province.
