Việt Nam is looking to spend VNĐ400 trillion (US$17.65 billion) on upgrades to its airports from now until 2030, according to a proposal that the Ministry of Transport has submitted to the Government.

The country's top priorities included the Nội Bài International Airport in capital city Hà Nội, the Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport in in the southern economic hub HCM City and the under-construction Long Thành International Airport Đồng Nai Province (located some 40km to the east of HCM City). 

In addition, 22 other airports across the country are to receive major upgrades while six new airports are to be built with an objective to bring Việt Nam's airport capacity to 278 million passengers a year, with 95 per cent of the population within a 100km radius of an airport.
