Vietnam Airlines will survey the promotion and expansion of international and domestic air networks to and from the airport in 2018 and the following years on the basis of market demand and exploitation efficiency.

In addition, the airlines and the northern province will cooperate to carry out tourism and investment promotion plans of Quang Ninh and sponsor international and domestic cultural, artistic and tourism events in the 2018-2021 period.

At the signing ceremony, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Long stressed that Quang Ninh will put into use some key transport works in June 2018, such as Ha Long - Hai Phong and Ha Long - Van Don expressways and Van Don International Airport, that play a crucial role in local socio-economic development.

Over the past years, Vietnam Airlines has had a long-time cooperation with Quang Ninh in many tourism, trade and investment promotion activities through the distribution of tourism publications at branch offices of Vietnam Airlines domestically and internationally, and introduction of Quang Ninh’s tourism on some information publications of the carrier, especially Heritage magazine.

As planned, the Van Don International Airport in Van Don District will be put into operation in 2018, meeting the travel and trade demand of local residents and tourists.
