vietnam-caavIn order to be able to prepare operation plans in the time ahead, representatives from domestic and foreign air carriers suggested that the Ministry of Transport and the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) announce the plan on upgrading and expanding Ho Chi Minh City-based Tan Son Nhat International Airport.

 

The suggestion was forwarded at a conference on air transport policies held by the Transport Ministry in Hanoi on Friday (Nov 18), Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported.

 

Several airlines such as Vietnam Airlines, VietJet Air, Cathay Pacific, Thai Cargo, Cebu Pacific and Cagorlux, and airport corporations like the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) and the Vietnam Air Traffic Management Corporation (VATM) participated in the meeting.

 

The Transport Ministry and CAAV, in response, said the upgrading will target the airport apron of Tan Son Nhat International Airport and its terminal T2 whose capacity will be raised from 10 million passengers to 12-13 million per year.

 

The carriers also called on Vietnamese management agencies to take measures to cut operating costs in Vietnam, which, they said, remain high compared with other regional countries, Bernama new reported.

 

Regarding this issue, CAAV explained that the operating costs in Vietnam are the third highest in the region, after Singapore and Thailand.

 

The prices are set in line with guidelines of the International Civil Aviation Organisation and many of them have been unchanged for years.

 

However, CAAV has offered discounts to carriers during their commercial launch of new routes to/from Vietnam, it said.
