History

Trà Nóc Airport was originally constructed during the Vietnam War in 1965 by United States Air Force (USAF) civil engineering units as a military airfield. It was used by the USAF as well as being the Headquarters of the Republic of Vietnam Air Force (VNAF) 4th Air Division until 1975.

After 1975, the facility was initially unused, then later operated as a small regional airport for Can Tho. It is currently being expanded and upgraded to international status, with completion due in 2008.
