The Quang Tri Domestic Airport will be constructed under a public-private partnership (PPP) model with total investment capital of USD 348.26 million, which will be mobilized from the state budget and private enterprises.
The airport will include a 10,000 m2 terminal handling 1 million passengers a year. There will be four places in the aircraft parking area, with land set aside for expansion if needed.
Quang Tri is one of 28 domestic airports which will be put into operation during the period 2020-2030 under the Decision No.236/QD-TTg of the Prime Minister approving the adjustment of the planning on air transport in this period. The project contributes to completing the province’s transport infrastructure, spurring socio-economic development while simultaneously promoting the tourism sector of the province. There is currently no airport in Quang Tri and visitors must fly to Quang Binh or Hue and then travel by road for two or three hours to reach the province.
