BizLIVE - The seminar themed “Aviation Development – The Driving Force of Vietnam Tourism Growth” will be organized at the International Convention Center, FLC Samson Beach & Golf Resort (Thanh Hoa province) at 13:30, on Thursday, July 26, 2018.

In 2010 - 2017 period, the air transport market in Vietnam recorded a growth rate of 16.64%/year in number of passengers and 14%/year in air cargo. In the first half of 2018, the number of air passengers reached 24.6 million, up 15.2% on year, while the volume of air cargo hit 176,400 tons, up 14.8% on-year.

In 2017, there were 12.9 million foreign visitors to Vietnam, 7.5 million Vietnamese arrivals to other countries and over 70 million Vietnamese traveling around Vietnam. In fact, air transport was the most common mode of transport.

Vietnam is not an exception when aviation infrastructure development does not keep pace with the growth in passenger number, which causes to the overload at local airports. In order to solve this problem, the Vietnam Government should learn from other regional countries to support airlines in the early time in terms of capital and infrastructure for the sake of tourism and local economic growth.

Currently, in Vietnam, there are four airlines namely Vietnam Airlines, Vietjet Air, Jetstar Pacific and Vasco, among which, Vietnam Airlines wholly owns Vasco and 70% stake of Jetstar. These airlines are operating at 21 airports, including three international airports namely Noi Bai, Tan San Nhat and Danang. Cam Ranh airport is newly launched while Long Thanh airport will be built soon.

All the questions concerning the contribution of aviation sector to tourism and economic growth, the opportunities for new airlines, etc. will be answered at the seminar themed “Aviation Development – The Driving  Force of Vietnam Tourism Growth”.
