Vietnam to build new airport on Go Gang Island

Vietnam is planning to build a new airport on Go Gang Island, approximately two hours away from Ho Cho Minh City.

The new airport will replace the current Vung Tau Airport, which is mainly used for helicopters serving logistics and oil and gas services. The total investment is estimated at $1 billion and will be sourced from selling old airport land or raised under the public-private partnership model.

The new airport will have a designed capacity of 100,000 passengers and 500 tons of goods a year.

Go Gang is a small island in Long Son Commune, about three kilometers off the beach town of Vung Tau in southern Vietnam and about 90 km from HCMC. The island is also a tourist destination with abundant seafood resources and beautiful beaches.

Currently, Veitnam has 22 civilian airports, including 10 that are international. Tan Son Nhat in Ho Chi Minh City and Noi Bai in Hanoi are the country’s two biggest airports.
