Ho Tram plans exclusive airport serving customers

Vietnam’s southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau has agreed in principle to allow the Ho Tram Project Co Ltd to construct a small airport used exclusively for the integrated resort complex, VN Express International reports.

The proposed airport would cover 200 hectares in Dat Do District under the build-operate-transfer model.

While the airport will be used to carry tourists from other domestic airports to Ho Tram Strip, the provincial government will consider expanding the airport for tourism and economic development in the long term, says the report.

According to Michael Kelly, executive chairman of Ho Tram Strip, the Ho Tram Project Company has already signed a MOU on future cooperation opportunities with local budget carrier VietJet Air.
