Due to the economic development of the island and continuous increase in passengers, a new airport project is planned. The new airport will be built in an area of 8 square kilometers on Phu Quoc island at a cost of US$970 million. Upon completion, this airport will have a paved runway of 3000 m x 50 m, capable to handle medium aircraft like the Airbus A320, A321 and Boeing 767. The new airport will have a capacity of 7 million passengers per year.

History

The airport was built by the French colonists in 1930s and further developed during the Vietnam War. The original airstrip had a 996-m-long runway. In 1975, following the fall of Saigon, this airport continued to serve commercial flights. In 1983, it was extended to 1496 m. In 1993, the runway surface was reinforced, a 148.5-m-long taxiway and an apron of 120 x 60 m were added. During 1994-1995, the new terminal was built.
